Max Lucado: ‘The One Thing That Has Helped Me More Than Anything Else’ as a Preacher

“Most of the time I will inject a funny story midway through the message because people have been sitting there for 15 or 20 minutes. They need something to get them to take a good, deep breath to wake them up, and nothing does that better than laughter.”

“Because I so depend on stories both for preaching and writing, I’m always on the hunt.”

“‘Preach like there’s a broken heart on every pew’ has been a real mantra for me because there truly is a broken heart on every pew, even though most churches don’t have pews anymore.”

“The mistake I see made more than any is in an effort to make too many points, we make no point. In an effort to say so much, we say so little.”

“Good communication is really saying the same thing, but from a variety of different ways.”
