Virus Attack!

My computer was attacked yesterday by all sorts of viruses so my husband and I spent last evening attempting to clean it! You'll definitely be seeing something in the way of a devotional on that one! Anyway, here is another thought from Ronald Rolheiser, The Restless Heart.

It is because of the refusal to be vulnerable that, far too foten, instead of enjoying friendship and intimacy with those around us, we find ourselves fencing with each other, using our talents, achievements and strengths as weapons.

To be vulnerable is to be strong enough to be able to present ourselves without false props, without an artificial display of our credentials. In brief, to be vulnerable is to be strong enough to be honest and tender. Like Jesus, the person who is vulnerable is a person who cares enough to let himself be weak, precisely because he does care.
