Today I was reflecting on how our personal stories fit in God’s bigger story a.k.a the Biblical meta-narrative. I came across this quote from H. Stephen Shoemaker, the author of Godstories:
Our lives must find their place in some greater story or they will find their place in some lesser story.
This led me to two questions:
- Do most followers of Jesus really know God’s bigger story from scripture?
- Do we see how our individual stories belong in the context of His story?
