The Most Important Storyteller 最重要的講故事的人

One thing I learned in serving in Children’s Ministry is that children love stories. But who is the most important storyteller in their lives? Let’s read the passage first.

2 I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings from of old, 3 things that we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us. 4 We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done. (Psalm 78:2-4)

There are three groups of people in this passage:

(1) I/We (first person), the psalmist’s generation

(2) our ancestors, person from the past

(3) their descendant, next generation, going to the future

The first group of I/we, the psalmist’s generation is standing in between the past and the future. Similarly, we are standing between the past and the future. The important task for us to do is to tell the faith stories of the past to future generations.  The content of the story to tell is described at the end of the verse 4:

· The praiseworthy deeds of the Lord,

· His power,

· And the wonders He has done

Are you willing to tell future generations about the story of God? Who is the most important storyteller of children’s lives? It’s parents, grandparents, and also you. This Psalm tells us the whole generation is charged to share their faith to the future generations.

What if my kids are grown up or I don’t have any biological children, am I exempt from this task? No, God has entrusted this generation to pass the faith to the next. As a part of this generation, we have to fulfill His task.

What if I don’t know how to teach? In addition to receiving the training and equipping provided by the church, we can take up many opportunities of ministries in the church, such as AV, praise team, fellowship leaders, etc. If you can commit to some ministry or task, you can share the burden with those who can teach so that they may concentrate in teaching instead of taking on a lot of responsibilities.  By working together as a body of Christ, we can pass the faith stories to the next generation and fulfill God’s task. And you are part of it.
