The Eishes Chayil, the Woman of Valor, sets the tone of love,  and spirituality for all those around her. Her wisdom can even challenge the Angel of Death.

short medieval story, The Gardener and the Bird of Wisdom,http://ow.ly/qFAA9

Though you have chosen to act without wisdom I will remind you: ‘There is gold, and abundance of costly stones; but the lips informed by knowledge are a precious jewel. (Proverbs 20:15) The desire of the righteous ends only in good; the expectation of the wicked in anger.’ (Proverbs 11:23)

The tales and stories of faith are filled with treasures that are becoming lost in a world where science, technology and mass media capture the attention of people. The storytellers of the sacred stories are lost in a society that looks for entertainment and not “lessons”.

 

When one looks for spiritual guidance they are often directed almost exclusively to the Scriptures or House of Worship, but the beauty and wonder become lost in a deluge of religious facts and things to memorize. One’s beliefs are like a fine gem. When one looks at a gem, they don’t look at just one facet, but the whole stone.

 

So introduces the story of, The Flawed Stone, http://ow.ly/qi5Xt, a short story of the gem of faith within everyone.

Many talk and tell about Bible Stories, but sometimes tales about the Bible are just as powerful. Read a short story of limited knowledge of Torah/Scriptures/Bible and great blessings, A Story About The Book of Genesis, http://ow.ly/bKrUn

Proverbs 10:7-"the remembrance of a saint is a blessing"-to mean that any mention of a saint, such as by telling a story about him, brings a double blessing.

Religious stories always have an underlying purpose, which is to inspire people with faith and communicate wisdom and values.

A prime requirement for religious storytelling is the realization and conviction that holy stories are not "simply stories" like any others. A person who does not sense their profound difference from profane stories-regardless of the latter's excellence or charm-is not fit to tell them. First, a storyteller with religious integrity will not pander to an audience, cutting and trimming tales to fit their taste. Second, a storyteller does not have a free hand to change things at will.

The difference between one storyteller and another; I have seen how a holy storyteller-someone on a high spiritual level-can take a story that I am familiar with, that appears to my eyes plain and dull, and can, so to speak, open it up to reveal its hidden light until it glows with holy charm.
