Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Master's Degree - #4633
You've got to ask yourself, did you do it in a way that would give you Jesus' approval too? Or did it cost you Jesus' approval? Have you told the truth on your way to that goal? Have you consistently had your time with Him or have you sacrificed that for your goal? Have you been caring for people or running over people to get there? Have you taken time to minister to people in need or are you just too busy for that? Have you stayed pure?

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When the Container Lies to You - #4201
The container promised me one thing - but what was inside was very different. That's an experience every one of us has had - when we reached for something based on what it was supposed to give us, only to be disappointed when we found out what was really inside. That deception is, in fact, the very nature of sin, and it's why we end up with scars and messes we never knew were going to be a part of.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Seeing What Isn't Working - #4202
Our grandson basically ignored the lights that were working - all he could see were the ones that weren't working. Sadly, there are grownup people who live most of their lives that way - they look right past the things that are working and choose to focus on the things that aren't working. So they're often frustrated, discontent, unhappy, critical. And when we're like that, I guess we become "negatologists" - people who major on the negative.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Healthy Appetite - #4205
Watching my granddaughter's demand for mama's milk has actually helped me understand even more how God uses that example in showing us how to grow in Him. I feel like He's talking about my little darlin' when He says in 1 Peter 2:2, our word for today from the Word of God, "Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Very Expensive House - #4209
It's amazing how little kids figure out what we big kids tend to forget - or don't ever get. Our grandson's got it. If you've asked Jesus to come into your life and be your personal Savior, you are "Jesus' house." Which is going to guide - or should guide - a whole lot of the choices you make.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Your Attitude and Your Altitude - #4238
Every pilot knows if your attitude is incorrect, there will be tragic results. Every person knows that - or at least we should. If your attitude is right, you can make it through almost anything. If your attitude is wrong, you're going to start losing altitude, tumbling, and eventually crashing. In life, we usually don't get to choose our circumstances, the kind of stuff we have to fly through. A lot of that is determined by forces or people beyond our control. But we can choose our attitude. And it will be our attitude, not our circumstances, that determine whether we stay up or go down.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Recovering from a Wrong Turn - #4257
Someone's listening today who has made the same mistake our friend made when he wanted to head home. You have made a wrong turn. You're driving full speed ahead in the wrong direction. At least, from God's perspective - which is the only perspective that counts. You're compromising your honesty, your purity, your relationship with Him, or the plans God has for you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Light Where It's Needed - #4273
It sounds like Mister Rogers didn't like what he saw on television. But did he curse the darkness? No - he turned on a light. Which, as I understand it, is what Jesus had in mind for anyone who follows Him. John 1:5 described the impact of Jesus' coming to our world this way: "The light shines in the darkness."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Tantalizing Sewage - #4296
It looked so inviting. It was so dirty - and potentially so damaging. Just like so many of the temptations that beckon to you and me, almost daily, it seems. And that's why so many have ended up in the middle of something that looked good but has left them polluted, scarred, ashamed.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Full Speed Ahead in the Wrong Direction - #4298
I hate to say it, but I think I've done that with God sometimes. Probably you have, too. God has some stern words for those of us who tend to be pretty strong-willed, determined-to-get-there kind of people. Being determined, goal-oriented, full of drive can be a great, even God-given, thing. But it's all too easy for us to go darting out of the driveway and proceeding full speed ahead in the wrong direction.
