Do you wonder if storytelling is all that important? If so, consider this:
God was the original storyteller! He inspired our Old Testament heroes to tell their stories. Jesus told stories, and so did those who penned the New Testament.
Where would we be today if they had not told their stories?
You are part of a story much bigger than yourself:
Your story is part of God’s story,
and God’s story is part of yours.
Stories are important!
Stories are among God’s most powerful and effective tools.
Stories bridge gaps between past and future generations.
Stories fortify timid hearts and soften hard hearts.
Stories help solve problems.
Stories inspire readers to make sense of their lives and plan for the future.
Stories guide, persuade, and influence.
Stories inspire prayer.
Stories bring healing.
Stories share wisdom, hope, and faith.
Stories help readers comprehend and remember more readily than do facts, figures, rules, lectures, or sermons.
Stories help readers make important decisions.
Stories help readers discover God’s purposes for their lives.
Stories make a difference.
Stories can change individuals, families, communities, towns, nations—and even the world!
Stories can change lives for eternity.
Your stories are not your own.
They have been entrusted to you by God.
Serve Him, and your readers, with your stories.
