The fear of missing out is nothing new:
I think that fear of missing out is closely linked to envy and jealousy because you are afraid of missing out on what someone else has. The Bible warns about envy and jealousy.
Envy rots the bones.
I realized the reason people work hard and try to succeed: They are jealous of each other. This, too, is useless. It is like chasing the wind.
1 Corinthians 13:4
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud.
Good looks, money, possessions, likes and follows do not last forever. We should fix our eyes on Jesus and the things that build his kingdom. We should focus on loving people, sharing with the poor, sharing the Good News of the Gospel, studying God's Word and spending time in prayer - these things last.
