I recently quizzed my congregation on their knowledge of the Bible by asking them which of the following sayings are direct quotes from Scripture:
1. Moderation in all things.
2. Spare the rod, spoil the child.
3. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
4. God helps those who help themselves.
5. Money is the root of all evil.
6. Cleanliness is next to godliness.
7. This too shall pass.
8. God works in mysterious ways.
9. The eye is the window to the soul.
10. The lion shall lay down with the lamb.
11. Pride comes before the fall.
What do you think? Which are directly from the Bible and which are not? You will find the answer as the first comment to this post.
