Five Phrases You Probably Didn’t Know Came From The Bible
A Time For Everything – November 8, 2016
Ecclesiastes 3:1, There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: 2a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, 3a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, 4a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance…
This week’s blogs and KLAK message will focus on 5 phrases that are commonly used today which most people don’t realize came from the Bible, or at least don’t know where they came from in the Bible. The first phrase was “a drop in the bucket.” If you missed it, you can find it on my daily blog @ www.johnmarkcaton.com . The second phrase that you may not realize came from the Scripture is “for everything there is a season” or more accurately stated there is a right time and a wrong time for everything. That phrase comes straight from the Bible. In Ecclesiastes 3:1, Solomon wrote these words, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: 2a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot… 4a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance…”
In other words, there is a right time and wrong time for everything. Sometimes we wait too long and miss God’s opportunity, and sometimes we rush too fast and execute our own plans instead of God’s plans. Pray for wisdom and understanding with both the daily and future events of your life.
So today, do your best to do the right thing at the right time, and chances are it will be a good day!
Think about it, and have a blessed day!
