It's a easy to see why Max Lucado is a popular Christian writer; he has the ability to speak a language a reader can easily understand. From Max:

A Compassionate God

"He comforts us every time we
have trouble, so when others have trouble,
we can comfort them."

~ 2 Corinthians 1:4

My child’s feelings are hurt. I tell her she’s special.

My child is afraid. I won’t go to sleep until she is secure.

I’m not a hero .… I’m a parent. When a child hurts, a parent does what comes naturally. He helps.…

Why don’t I let my Father do for me what I am more than willing to do for my own children?

I’m learning.

Being a father is teaching me that when I am criticized, injured, or afraid, there is a Father who is ready to comfort me. There is a Father who will hold me until I’m better, help me until I can live with the hurt, and who won’t go to sleep when I’m afraid of waking up and seeing the dark.
