Getting and missing

This is a fundamental problem with most information retrieval approaches: you only know what you’re getting, not what you’re missing.

There’s got to be a spiritual application in this remark somewhere. In the world, people don’t even really know what they’re getting, until it’s too late. Nor do they have any idea of what they’re missing. In Christ, you know what you’re getting, as well as what you’re missing — and you’re glad of it!
