Powerful – Six Sentence Story

White Blossoms and Pollen

Saul consented to the stoning of Stephen outside of Jerusalem. Little did he realize that years later he himself would be stoned in Lystra, stoned to death so his enemies thought. And perhaps it was to death, but after being dragged out of town and left for dead by men who supposedly knew what they were doing, he would stand up.

On his way to Damascus, Saul once again was up to no good. This time the Lord Himself knocked him down, or rather, he fell down unaccustomed to the blinding light. When his blindness left, so too did his powerful delusion.

Denise offers the prompt word “powerful” for this week’s Six Sentence Stories. The story is a recounting of some events from Acts 6-9,14.

  1. Your Six Sentence chops are well suited to this (as other) re-tellings of stories from the Bible. Lucky them guys what wrote it are dead, they’d be right jealous of your Sixes.
    Taut, to the point and still with offering the underlying spirit of the original.

    1. Yes, I can see how they would be friends now in heaven even though it didn’t look like it initially. It is beautiful to think that such can happen with the people we know today. Thank you, Jenna!


  2. Yours is a powerful Six, Frank. I’m not overly familiar with the story, yet I can tell by your characterization you’ve tightened it up for the lay person to understand it’s message.
