In all of our business, we should comport ourselves in a just manner. Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - How A Thermometer Becomes A Thermostat - #4084 http://hutchcraft.com/A-Word-With-You/Your-Hindrances/How-A-Thermometer-Becomes-A-Thermostat-4084 2008-08-01T15:28:10-05:00 What most of us would like to be is a thermostat - someone who controls the temperature in our situation. Your family sure needs for you to be a thermostat; if everyone's a thermometer, it's chaos there. The people you work with, your friends - they need someone who is under control, who doesn't go off with the stress, who's steady and caring and peaceful. Those thermostat people are rare - and valuable. Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Sandbag Syndrome - #3807 http://hutchcraft.com/A-Word-With-You/Your-Most-Important-Relationship/The-Sandbag-Syndrome-3807 2008-07-30T16:52:11-05:00 Because God loves you, He brings some Divine sandbags into your life. When God is working in your life and through your life, you need ballast to keep your feet on the ground. The Lord always has His levelers--trying circumstances, criticism, some failure, a medical problem, someone who loves you enough to tell you the hard truth, financial struggles. God's sandbags aren't much fun, but we really need them.
