Power Of Stories To Teach Us About Unwavering Faith And Values9:00 PM
I'm really thrilled to be part of this week's #LMMLinkup at Mary-andering Creatively and Brandi Raae. I'm sharing about the power of stories to teach us about faith and values.
The stories we read in books don’t just entertain us and bring us to places beyond our wildest imagination. They teach us lessons, guide us, influence us, and mold us.
Stories Teach Us Unwavering Faith and ValuesI was thinking about bestselling novels like Harry Potter, Divergent and The Hunger Games lately.
They’re about worlds different from ours, yet the parallelism is impeccable.
An ordinary person with extraordinary abilities and admirable boldness, unknown to that person until the situation calls for it.
It’s all about someone who is deep down good and genuine, who doesn’t want to keep quiet and follow an unjust autocrat blindly. Someone who is selfless enough to forget his /her discomfort and safety for the good of everybody, and to protect his/her loved ones from tyranny.
They didn’t want to be heroes, but their world needed one, so that’s what they become.They did not wait around for a savior to help them out of their miserable situation. With what they have, with who they are, with nothing but their principle and intention to end evil and help the oppressed, they fought, they risked their lives, and they conquered.
I love books like these. Books that don’t just tell of happily ever after, and fairies and true love’s kiss---not that there’s something wrong with fairy tales. I grew up with Disney and I’ll always be thankful for it made my imagination fly.
But I love books that don’t sugar coat the truth in life.Books that tell me honestly that there will be obstacles, there will be monsters, there will be people in power who will try to control us and strip us of our freedom.
It is our unwavering faith and values that we uphold that will keep us together as people regardless our color, gender, beliefs, or the language we speak.Click here to read the full story. Thank you.
