<< A Different Perspective, with Berni Dymet

Christianity Works - March 31

Prov. 1:5-6 ...let the wise also hear and gain in learning, and the discerning acquire skill, to understand a proverb and a figure, the words of the wise and their riddles.

I love a good story - particularly when it reaches into my circumstances and my realities and it touches me deep inside.  That's why people cry during movies…..stories touch our hearts.

I've heard dry preaching that sounds rather like it's straight out of a text book, and then I've heard preaching that somehow brings the realities of God alive in the middle of my life.  You don't have to be a genius to figure out which one works best.

Jesus did a lot of His preaching through stories about farmers and grain and seeds and lamps and bushels and weddings.  Must have seemed odd to the crowds - compared to what they were used to down at the local synagogue.  Almost sacrilegious I suspect.  And often they didn't get what He was on about.

I can just see them around the dinner table that night - "What do you think He meant by that?"  "Well, I think that..."  There they were, chewing on His words, digesting them…until it dropped into their hearts..."
