Despite how we may feel at times, we all have extraordinary stories to tell. Our lives are all uniquely different, and our stories are not something that we should shy away from. Jesus told stories in order to convey important truths in a way that people would understand. We can all relate to stories. The religious leaders of Jesus' time only wanted people to follow the rules. Rules try to enforce only one interpretation, and attempt to write the ending before the ending has even been written!
Jesus knew that following these so called “rules” would only keep people away from the kingdom of heaven.
Jesus wants us to live our lives together, unbound by rules, sharing in each other’s stories.
Make peace with your story, do not be afraid to tell it!
Your story will always be open ended, only in heaven will you find out the end of your story! Your story will go on to impact those you have loved and cared for and those you have passed it on to!
