Stories in Heaven

I’ve been reading a lot of fiction lately, enjoying stories that deliver excitement without real-life consequences and resolve every conflict or mystery before the last page. I love a good story.

Stories bring joy to my life, and I wonder whether we will have stories in heaven. Jesus was a great storyteller here on earth, and God’s story of redemption has been called “the greatest story ever told,” but a good story requires conflict. If heaven is a place without tears or pain (Revelation 21:4), can there be stories?

As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
