From the book, Who Said That?  by Shari Abbott, Reasons for Hope* Jesus

There are many pithy (concise and forcefully expressive) sayings that are used in everyday conversation.  Many people use them, but most people have no idea the source from where they originate.  

It should be no surprise that many of these sayings are found in the Bible, and they long pre-date the time when the sayings came into use.  This shows how the Bible has always had great influence on man’s life, relationships, and even everyday language.  The fact that so many of these saying are still in use today underscores the timeless relevance of God’s Word.

The book, Who said that? Common everyday sayings…where do they come from? shares more than 140 sayings.  For example, who said, "Beat your swords into plowshares," or from where did the sayings, "blood money" and "by the skin of my teeth" originate? Find out the answers to these, and more, as we reveal the origins of popular sayings from the book Who Said That?

Get the book, learn the sayings and then, the next time you hear one of these sayings, ask the question, “Who said that?”  Be ready to share the biblical origin and turn the conversation to one of spiritual importance.

“Put Your House in Order!”

This is a saying that comes from the words of the Lord through the prophet Isaiah. 

Get your business or personal affairs organized. This is sometimes used in reference to impending death.

2 Kings 20:1  In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live.

Isaiah 38:1  In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came unto him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order: for thou shalt die, and not live.

Who Said That? Common Everyday Sayings...where do they come from?

Add this to an Easter Basket. Tuck it in a Christmas stocking. Give it as a simple and fun everyday gift. Or give it to yourself for a fun and equipping read, BECAUSE...

It's easy to start conversations, but it's not easy to make them about matters of spiritual importance.

Jesus commissioned us to tell others about who He is and the saving grace He offers.  Starting those conversations isn't always easy.  So we must learn to listen for opportunities to "turn-the-talk."  Hearing a common saying, or using one as you speak, opens the "door" to share the origin of the words in the Bible and to talk about the importance of the Bible and the Person who wrote it!

Who Said That? NEW_WST COVER_2can also serve as a type of “tract” for your non-believing family and friends. It’s simply a look at the origins of sayings that we all use...until you get to the last few pages. The book closes with the saying, “Yada, yada, yada,” which means “you know, you know, you know.” The statement is then made: “God knows [yada] you” and the question is asked “Do you know [yada] Him?” The question is followed by a gospel presentation and an invitation to repent and trust in Christ, making this book a simple way to share the gospel with an unsaved (and often uninterested or unwilling-to-listen) friend.
 A great gift for any believer who wants to know Jesus better and love Him more.
