Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Entertainitis - #4185
This may have been the first known case of entertainitis - an interest in following Jesus as long as it's easy to take, as long as it's fun. I didn't really realize how shallow our faith is until I met Christians in other countries. They know how to pray powerfully and extensively. They're hungry, not for jokes and stories, but for solid Biblical teaching. They're interested in the substance of Christianity, not the style of the speaker. While we're having socials, they're having revivals! While we accept mediocrity, they're expecting miracles.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - How to Raise Kids Who Stay in Bounds - #5079
If you don't have clear boundaries and clear penalties, you can't have a game. If children don't have clear boundaries and clear penalties, they can't have a life! Everywhere you look these days, you see kids who are out of control, as if there's no such thing as out of bounds. Guess where they learned that? From parents who never taught or never consistently enforced boundaries. Disciplining your child is not an option; it is a Biblical mandate for moms and dads.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Bumpy Landings - #4022
Now, maybe you've been experiencing some bumpy landings lately. It could be that God is saying, "Now that I've got your attention, I'd like to make a few announcements." Often, life's bumpy landings are God's way of getting our attention to tell us things and show us things that we could otherwise never see.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Worst Trade in the World - #4031
OK, now, good traders try to end up getting something better than what they gave away. It doesn't always happen. In our word for today from the Word of God, Esau made what was arguably the worst trade anyone has ever made. He traded a priceless treasure for a relatively worthless trinket. Tragically, someone reading today may be making a trade like that right now.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Mirror That Loves You - #4041
There are things we can't see about ourselves - things that aren't particularly flattering. That's why we have mirrors. And some of the most revealing mirrors in your life aren't glass reflectors hanging on a wall. They're people who love you enough to show you things about yourself that you might not otherwise see.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Souvenirs of Sin - #3803
If you have to carry some of the consequences of what you've done wrong, it can be powerful incentive not to do it again--which can save you from consequences that will be far worse. Now that's why God sometimes allows you and me to experience some unpleasant results of our sin. It's not that He hasn't forgiven us or that He doesn't love us. It's because He does.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Sandbag Syndrome - #3807
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.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - How to Avoid Being Grounded - #3866
Right now you may be missing God's best somewhere in your life. There's a relationship you shouldn't be in or a relationship that you've allowed bitterness and resentment to creep into. Maybe you're living a schedule that is neglecting your time with God, or your family priorities, or the rest that God intends us to have. Maybe you're playing around morally, or you're allowing dishonesty to creep into your business practices or your schoolwork. I don't know where you may be out of bounds, but I do know that God will not let you get away with it. He loves you too much to let you keep going on a road that will bring you greater pain and greater judgment.
