Max Lucado Quotes

A woman's heart should be so hidden in God that a man has to seek Him
A woman's heart should be so hidden in God that a man has to seek Him just to find her.

I choose gentleness... Nothing is won by force. I choose to be gentle. If I raise my voice may it be only in praise. If I clench my fist, may it be only in prayer. If I make a demand, may it be only of myself.

Philosophers can debate the meaning of life, but you need a Lord who can declare the meaning of life.

We see a hearse; we think sorrow. We see a grave; we think despair. We hear of a death; we think of a loss. Not so in heaven. When heaven sees a breathless body, it sees the vacated cocoon & the liberated butterfly.

When we see death, we see disaster. When Jesus sees death, he sees deliverance!

The wizard [of Oz] says look inside yourself and find self. God says look inside yourself and find [the Holy Spirit]. The first will get you to Kansas.
The latter will get you to heaven.
Take your pick.
