Is that in the Bible? — Part 2

Famous sayings from the Sacred Scriptures are found throughout the expressions that we regularly use, and embedded deeply within the thinking of our culture, even though we often times do not recognize them as coming from the Bible.  Early in August, I posted some of these sayings [from Patrick Madrid’s article in Envoy magazine “Where is that in the Bible?”].  Why not take a few minutes and look them up or use them as a teaching and instruction for your children?
