To be vulnerable is to be valiant (the courage of nonviolence)

To be vulnerable is to be valiant. To be violent is to be cowardly cruel.

To truly love people requires us to be vulnerable. To dislike them or to look down on them, doesn’t.

Ego and vulnerability never team up. They’ve been practicing cancel culture since the beginning.

You can’t fake vulnerability because it never pretends that it’s something that it’s not. Vulnerability is the willingness to open up your heart, to deeply care, to be humbly honest, to dispense with defensiveness.

Joy can’t flow thru a shut down heart. It takes vulnerability to experience rivers of joy.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
