Jesus told stories. In fact, He told a lot of them. Why? Because stories helped Him connect life-changing spiritual principles to situations and circumstances people in the audience were familiar with. He used them to create a bridge between people’s hearts and the message He wanted his followers to understand. Stories are no less powerful today.
