Proverbs 13:3-Be careful what you say and protect your life. A careless talker destroys himself.

Yahoo finance recently published an article which noted that Millennials are married to their phones. Some 80% even sleep with them within arm’s reach. However, as much as millennials like to have their phone with them, there is one thing they do not like to do with them, and that’s “Talk on them!”

In fact, the article said that many millennials do not like talking on their phones because it makes them nervous because when they talk they can’t edit their conversations like they do on text. In reality, texting does not convey the same meaning and emotion that voice inflection does, so we often find ourselves in more trouble texting than if we were actually having a voice to voice conversation.

However, whether you prefer to text or talk live, those words from the book of Proverbs offer good direction, Be careful what you say and protect your life. A careless talker destroys himself.

Think about it…and have great day!
