A Little Birdie Told Me So

Sometimes we hear old timers using phrases they picked up many years ago. A few you should recognize are: “ The Early Bird Gets The Worm.” / “A Penney Saved Is A Penny Earned.”/ “Cleanliness Is Next To Godliness.”/ “God Helps Those Who Help Themselves.”( No, that one is not from the Bible!) I think most of these old sayings were quotes from Benjamin Franklin.

Today, I want to share another...” A Little Birdie Told Me So!” I remember as a young girl we would whisper secrets to friends. They usually did not remain a secret for long! Someone would come up to you later, with a smirk on their face, saying “ I Know Something You Don't Know,” voiced in a sarcastic tone of voice. They would tell their juicy secret. You asked where they had heard that. Like a good newspaper reporter they would not reveal their source! Then in a sound of triumph and mystery they would say “ A Little Birdie Told Me So!”

I was surprised the first time I came across the source of the childhood secret messenger. It is found in Ecclesiastes 10:20. It is a warning that even in the secrecy of our private bedrooms, what we say may be coming back to us later! “For A Bird Of The Heavens Will Carry The Sound, And The Winged Creature Will Make The Matter Known.” To close I'll use another catchy phrase: “ Well, I'll be dogged gone!”
