In these troubled times, it seems the only thing that can keep us going is spending all day scrolling past the word “Blessed!” in big bold letters above a picture of a sunset or country church. In the Christian world, you often see out-of-context Bible verses posted over top of these sunsets and country churches. But then there are also all the hokey quotes supposedly from celebrities or other influencers telling us we’re beautiful and need not give up. So, the question is, can you tell the difference?
Which of the following quotes are Bible verses taken out of context and which are inspirational quotes from other sources?
Let your smile change the world, but don't let the world change your smile.
Faith: it makes things possible, not easy.
Let not your heart be troubled.
Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believed.
You are more than who you were.
God works in mysterious ways.
This too shall pass.
With God, all things are possible.
God helps those who help themselves.
Cleanliness is next to godliness.
A cheerful heart is good medicine.
For we walk by faith, not by sight.
Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.
God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.
