A brief thought on stories:

It takes effort I have found to apply any lessons that are to be learned from a story. It is easy enough to merely listen to a story and not understand its implications upon one's self, should there be any.

I was listening to a story of a king who forgave all debts, and I realized that I was listening to it earnestly, but only as a story that had no implication on my life. That was wrong. One must take pains to apply the story to one's own self.

Take every opportunity to apply stories of the truth of the gospel to your own life.
