Fruits that Grow in Vulnerability by Henri Nouwen

There is a great difference between successfulness and fruitfulness. Success comes from strength, control and respectability. A successful person has the energy to create something to keep control over its development, and to make it available in large quantities. Success brings many rewards and often fame.

Fruits however, come from weakness and vulnerability. And fruits are unique. A child is the fruit conceived in vulnerability, community is the fruit born through brokenness, and intimacy is the fruit that grows through touching one another’s wounds. Let’s remind one another that what brings true and healing joy is not successfulness but fruitfulness.
