Inspirational Quotes about Love and Life from Max Lucado

“If you think it’s all about you, and I think it’s all about me, we have no hope for a melody.” – Excerpt from “It’s Not about Me,” by Max Lucado.

Lucado illustrates imagination yet his words are easily understood.

Just take a look at what Lucado says about life in Fearless“Can you imagine a life with no fear? What if faith, not fear, was your default reaction to threats?”

We subject ourselves to a position of fear, allowing anxiety to dominate and define our lives. Joy-sapping worries, Day–numbing dread, repeated bouts of insecurity that petrify and paralyze us. Fear will always knock on your door. Just don’t let it in. Learn to trust more and fear less.”

Feed your fears and your faith will starve. Feed your faith, and your fears will,” says Lucado.

Max Lucado is one of the best-selling Christian authors known today. Acknowledging his work is a blessing. His books are written with colorful imagery expressing his thoughts and inspiration.

When Lucado releases a new book, I go out to find it. The library is a great resource for finding these hidden treasures. One doesn’t need to buy every new book that comes out on the market; however Max Lucado’s work is well worth it.

In the Cure for the Common Life, Lucado writes, “You cannot be anything you want to be. But you can be everything God wants you to be.” 

In a simple sentence, Lucado speaks volumes of inspirational teachings.Books by Max Lucado include a series of Max on Life. He answers many common questions people ask about life, love, and God. Selected writings also include books for children and youth. The young adult collections provide insight into living a fascinating life. His writings inspire with humor and he has a unique flavor of expression that is only Max.

One of Max Lucado’s teaching ministry is a segment called, “UpWords” On his website, he encourages others to take a step closer to their faith and in knowing Jesus Christ.

In this series of Inspirational Quotes by Christian Leaders, I’m sharing with you some of my favorite quotes and teachings I’ve come across.

“There is a time for risky love,” Lucado says. “There is a time for extravagant gestures. There is a time to pour out your affections on ones you love. And when the time comes – seize it, don’t miss it.”
