Number of Words?

Thanks for joining me on a journey to evaluate our social media usage.  Does the Bible really have anything to say about this internet age and how it relates to me?  Read on to find out!

Too many words?

Proverbs 10:19 says,
"When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable,
But he who restrains his lips is wise."

Any one who babbles on and on is going to have a tough time avoiding sin.  Bottom line is that most of us have trouble applying self-control to our tongue that long.  I'll be honest, I've seen Facebook feeds and statuses.  There are many words and sin is there. 

Maybe you're having a tough time swallowing this.  Mosey on over to your favorite social media outlet.  Take a good, hard look at the number of words.  The foolishness and silly talk are rampant.  The Bible is true and relevant, so where there are many words, sin is unavoidable.

Take a look at the rest of the series here:
