Jesus used stories (a.k.a. parables) to tell people about God and His plan for all mankind. He was the greatest teacher that ever walked this earth. (Read HIS story here!) Doesn't it make sense that we should take a lesson from Him in that STORIES are one of the most effective ways to communicate truths and ideas?
Some of the greatest stories ever told in history can be found in the Bible, and guess what? YOUR story is a part of God's story too! Your life is an account of God's grace and love. No matter how insignificant you feel, that doesn't change the fact that your life story is meaningful and can have an impact on others. If you're brave enough, maybe you can share your story on 412teens. (Lots of others have told theirs already!)
