How often do you make a bad decision to be cool? We shouldn’t let FOMO control us or make our decisions for us. Being close to God is such a greater award than hanging out with people who aren’t going to bring you closer to Him.
In Genesis 3, Adam ate the fruit from the tree after Eve. He didn’t want to be left out, and the devil beat them. When we are tempted and we choose other things over God, Satan is behind it and nothing truly good is going to come of it. Temporary satisfaction from making bad decisions won’t benefit you, and will lead you away from God.
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12|2) Don’t conform to the world and look for satisfaction from worldly things because of FOMO. Being popular, above other people, getting in bad relationships, or lying isn’t God’s will or his plan for us.
Another good thing to keep in mind is that you don’t need anybody’s approval except God’s. “For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.” (Galatians 1|10) When you choose to get involved with something you shouldn’t, are you just looking for someone’s approval? Our decisions are going to affect us and we should choose to focus on God.
