Success vs. Fruitfulness

"We are called to be fruitful - not successful, not productive, not accomplished. Success comes from the strength, stress, and human effort. Fruitfulness comes from vulnerability and the admission of our own weakness."

-Henri Nouwen

i LOVE henry nowen. i am very good at being vulnerable, and an expert in weakness. shouldn't i be seeing lots of fruit. hmmm, on second thought maybe it isn't fruit for me to see.

LOVE these words!
