That's Not In the Bible
Often, in an effort to be comforting or reassuring we turn to religious sounding platitudes. Words we have heard said over and over again. Words that seem comforting, but often actually cause more harm. We don’t remember the the origins of such phrases exactly, but we assume they come from the bible. They don’t. And they’re not helpful- so stop using them, instead use the words actually provided in scripture to offer hope and healing.
