Have You Got FOMO?

… and surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.   Matthew 28:20b (NIV)

Few people can stand to “unplug” these days. So many of us are addicted to the need for 24×7 connection by cell phone, computer, tablet, or television. Are we afraid that something will happen without us, without our notice? As if our knowing, minute to minute, makes any great difference. It has become a real psychological disorder. According to a study by JWT Intelligence, Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) Syndrome apparently affects 70% of adults with symptoms of anxiety, sleeplessness, or difficulty concentrating.

And yet, the most important thing that we could ever miss out on, doesn’t require any kind of device. A wireless connection to Jesus Christ is not long distance. He’s right beside us all the time. So plug in to Jesus, rest easy, and don’t miss out.
