We have heard these phrases for so long–yet none are found in the Bible. Some are variations or misquotes–which are still not biblical!
What have I missed? Leave it in the comments below.
10. Spare the rod, spoil the child.
8. Cleanliness is next to godliness.
7. All things work together for good. (it is actually “GOD WORKS all things together…” and its for his good, not necessarily ours at that particular moment.)
6. Pride comes before the fall.
5. Hate the sin, love the sinner.
4. God works in mysterious ways.
3. This too shall pass.
2. God will not give you more than you can handle. (a misinterpretation of 1 Cor. 10:13)
1. God helps those who help themselves.
