When a skilled storyteller begins to tell a story, all ears, regardless of age, usually perk up.  This is because people of all ages enjoy listening to a story.  The best stories are the sort that have a truth or lesson woven into them.  Our Saviour knew this, and that is why He constantly told short stories or parables to those around Him.

Storytelling is an excellent skill to possess.  It is most valuable when used for teaching.  Likely, one day you will be a father, and you will have children to whom you will want to teach many things.  Stories are a wonderful way to teach children, especially little children.  Even sooner, you may work with a class at church, or be a camp counselor.  Storytelling will come in handy then also.
