Proverbs 23:17-18 says, Don’t envy sinners. But always respect the Lord. If you do, you will have hope for the future. Your wishes will come true. It's hard not to envy people when they plaster their good fortune on social media for the whole world to see - their perfect figure, perfect skin, perfect hair, perfect boyfriend, perfect house, perfect family, etc. No wonder everyone is experiencing FOMO. It's important to remember that these images usually don't represent their reality. It's also important to remember that for every social media influencer who appears to have the perfect life, there are millions of others worse off than you. Proverbs 23 tells us to honour and respect God. The hope for the future that we have is eternal life with Jesus and that's better than any mansion, luxury home, or designer wardrobe. Those things won't last, but a relationship with Jesus will.
