TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL MESSAGE:  After Albert Einstein’s wife died, his sister moved in to help with the household. For fourteen years she cared for him, allowing his valuable research to continue. When she suffered a stroke and lapsed into a coma, Einstein spent two hours every afternoon reading aloud to her. She gave no sign of understanding, but he read anyway. If she understood anything, she understood that he believed she was worth his time. He did what love does – he showed up.

Do you believe in your kids? Then show up. At their games, their plays, their recitals. It may not be possible to make each one, but it’s sure worth the effort. Show up. Whenever I speak at an area congregation, an elder in our church shows up. He does nothing, says nothing. He just smiles when we make eye contact. It means a lot to me. You want to bring out the best in someone? Then just show up.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR OF THIS DEVOTIONAL: Max Lucado is a pastor, speaker, and best-selling author who, in his own words, “writes books for people who don’t read books.” He serves the people of Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, and his message is for the hurting, the guilty, the lonely, and the discouraged: God loves you; let him.

As a writer, Max is known for combining poetic storytelling and homespun humor with the heart of a pastor. All of his trade books began as sermon series at Oak Hills Church, and his sermons all begin with Max asking himself this question: “What can I say on Sunday that will still matter on Monday?” He’s been dubbed “America’s Pastor” by Christianity Today, and “The Best Preacher in America” by Reader’s Digest.
