The Fear of Missing Out

Ever heard of “FOMO”? It stands for the Fear of Missing Out and may impact your spending decisions more than you realize.

FOMO can have a serious impact on your spending habits.

Ever gone out to dinner with friends even though your “Eating Out” budget was gone for the month?

How about when Black Friday rolls around and you decide to spend time waiting in crazy long lines to snag a toy that your child has on their Christmas list?

We HATE missing out! And it’s easy to pay a high price for inclusion. But remember what the Bible says – that our hope is not in this life alone but in the one to come. We don’t have to have a fear of missing out on the things of this world when we have so much more coming then we can buy with money.
