Pardon the Mess Podcast (Ep. 2.40) : Max Lucado

Well, there’s really not much to say other than this is a dream.

If you’re anything like me, Max Lucado’s books have been instrumental in shaping your faith over the years. The fact that I had the chance to sit down and talk with him on our podcast?

Well, there are almost no words.

Max Lucado is the Teaching Minister of Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas. He’s widely regarded as America’s best-selling inspirational author.

Pastor Max shares a few thoughts about his new book on happiness and why it matters to God and others that we live happy lives. He encourages us to practice forgiveness and relays a story in his life that impacted his view of forgiving others.

He brought up a parenting point I had never considered before: although there aren’t many “parenting” passages in the Bible, we learn all we need to know by considering how Jesus responded to parents who brought their children to him. Simply put, Jesus was always faithful and quick to respond to parents in need.

What a great reminder for us to pray for our kids and to bring them to Jesus.  

Pastor Max believes that encouragement is essential for happiness—and, believe you me, he was a huge encouragement today on our podcast.

I can’t wait for you to hear from one of my heroes of our faith!
