Strength for vulnerability.
July 29, 2018
Serving as the hand of God is being willing to be vulnerable, for you are offering something of who you are with the recognition that that may or may not be acceptable to others. A life of faith, pure faith, does not require of all a life of pure silence. There are countless examples of people who have spoken out for what they believed, and what they believed was motivated by faith. That is always an openness to vulnerability. All human beings are vulnerable. That is part of what it means to live a human life, but many are reluctant to display that vulnerability because it will be felt by them to be a display of weakness. It takes enormous personal strength to display vulnerability. Think for a moment how difficult it is for many to say, “I am sorry” or “I am wrong.” That’s not a statement of weakness. It is a demonstration of great courage.
