I read a story about Ernest Hemingway, that while sitting with some friends he made the statement that he could write a complete story using only six words.
His friends disagreed with him, and wagered a bet of ten dollars that he could not complete the task.
He reached over, picked up a napkin, took a pen from his pocket and scribbled down six words.
He then passed around the napkin to each of his friends upon which they promptly paid the bet, agreeing that he had won.
Here is what he wrote:
For sale. Baby shoes. Never worn.
The story moved my emotions and thoughts to realize that one can gather enough information in a few words to spur the imagination, and to reach a conclusion as to the origin and deeper meaning of the story.
This got me to thinking. What could I possibly say in six words about Christ that would constitute a story? I am no Ernest Hemingway for sure, and my humble attempt at a six word story is not to compete or compare but simply to glorify the Lord. Here is my six word story about grace.
Man sinned. Jesus crucified. Resurrected. Salvation.
Or on a more personal note \o/
My Sin. His Grace. I’m Saved.
