Tenderness opens the door of understanding leading to strength in the form of experiential confidence. Most often understanding is sought first without tenderness which only hardens, not strengthens, the understanding we already have. The great attempt, putting God in a box, the mind lustfully flirting with the heart, forcing the heart to take the beautifully masked punches. But our head begins to hurt from the heart’s wounds. The sore hands of the mind from trying to wrap itself around the Infinite, finally pull back, now, too tender. Without tenderness there is no understanding. Job 17:2-4
