What are human beings that you are mindful of them, or mortals, that you care for them?
— Hebrews 2:6

NL Daily Devotion for Wednesday, July 17, 2019

by Stefanie K. Fauth, Clergy Stuff


God sent Jesus to become a human.

God, who could have given Christ all the powers that ever were, allowed God’s only child to become human - with all of the vulnerability that goes with it.

There’s been a lot of talk about vulnerability lately, thanks to Brene Brown and her research into shame.

Her research shows that vulnerability is a key component in connection, which is a vital necessity in having a happy life.

The research is helpful - and our own faith story validates the impact of vulnerability.

What a gift is our own faith story!

God, thank you for showing us the power of vulnerability through Christ. Help us to emulate your love and openness in our own lives. Amen.
