Tuesday Tidbit: identifying spiritual handicaps
repentance with blessing,
discipleship with joy,
servanthood with power,
vulnerability with predictability,
and seeking with success.
Our spiritual handicap is that we are empty
when we think we are full."
-Charles Ringma, Dare to Journey with Henri Nouwen, reflection 94
