The Power of Storytelling
No matter what you’re teaching, if you put it into a story … everyone tends to remember it better.
The Master Teacher of all time knew that very well, for that’s precisely how Jesus of Nazareth taught. Telling stories. Not preaching.
When I taught school, I taught in stories. Heck, I even “talk” in stories now - and likely have for most of my life.
Long, long before ancient humans could ever read or write or text or message, we told stories to one another. A story, well told, will captivate us all.
And one of the most amazing things about the stories of old; we often can’t put a name or a face on the people in them. Yet, they are told and retold.
I will tell you now three stories you’ve never heard, but deserve to be told.
