There are certain phrases and stories that within Christianity often get treated as though they were Scripture. Like the story of the footprints in the sand… it’s awful (and by awful, I just mean it’s cheesy)! But Christians everywhere know it. It’s treated as though the footprints in the stand story comes in the appendix of all our Bibles and is expected to hang in at least one office in every church. Sometimes these phrases can be helpful in helping us understand and remember core aspects of our faith. But other times the phrases themselves can actually be a disservice to our faith. They can actually teach something contrary to what the Bible teaches.
One of these phrases:
“God won’t give you anything you can’t handle.”
