What 2 Common Phrases are Not Really in the Bible?

There are many wonderful well known verses in the Bible. Shakespeare quoted extensively from the Bible. People every day say things, perhaps not even realizing they are quoting the Bible.

But there are some things that people think are in the Bible; they talk about God; but the phrase is not actually in the Bible.

"God helps those who help themselves." This is quoted often, but it is not in the Bible.

"God never gives you more than you can handle." It is a great concept, but it is not in the Bible!
