I was in Colorado Springs last weekend for the Peak Fiction Writers Conference and was reminded again of the importance of story.
God, of course, knew that and connected with our minds and emotions through story. The Bible is filled with narratives about people who came to understand God better through some amazing circumstances.
Here's the summary for the story of Ruth: two widows are destitute but God redeems them. The book of Ruth is so much better!
Look at this one: A boy trusts God and defeats a giant soldier with a stone. Or read the story of David and Goliath. No comparison.
So go read a story today!
