Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - One Safe Place - #3885
The world's gotten pretty stormy lately, hasn't it? There's a lot of uncertainty, anxiety, even fear about what the future holds. We need a harbor - a place where we can be safe while the storm rages around us. And there can be one. Our word for today from the Word of God talks about it.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Looking at Something Better - #3887
God is calling godly parents to play offense, not just defense, in a spiritually hostile culture. Don't just try to keep your children from touching wrong things - help them look in the other direction and find better things to experience - God's things!
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Missing the Votes that Really Count - #3965
God seems to think that it's pretty important to have your family in your corner. He makes that priority clear even when He's spelling out the job qualifications for those aspiring to spiritual leadership.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Letting Go of Your Little Ones - #3997
For some of us who tend to be controllers, we have to make sure we're not trying to "play God" ourselves in our child's life. Parents who truly place their son or daughter in God's hands can lay off the nagging, the manipulating, the meddling, and the criticizing. What we try to control we often end up crushing.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Pain of a Fracture - #5402
Our son would be the first to tell you how much a fracture in your body hurts. That is pain that the Son of God understands all too well. He describes all of us who belong to Him as His "body" on earth. And when there's a break in His body, He feels the pain.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Britney's Battles - #8016
Most of us don’t have a child who’s a big star, but we have big dreams. But often raising kids today, well, it seems more like big headaches. How does that happen?
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Gift of a Daddy - #8049
If you’re a father like I am, there is no greater gift you can give your son or daughter than being the daddy they need. I’ve worked with a lot of young people, and so many are living with a daddy deficit. They’re forfeiting a life that matters and making all kinds of heartbreaking mistakes.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - What Your Child May be Missing - #5473
All children, no matter how old they are, need to know that their mom or dad loves them and is proud of them. It's that triple-A combination: our attention, our approval, our applause. Sadly, far too many sons and daughters, some all grown up now, are starved for their parent's blessing. Without it, they can make a lot of mistakes looking in all the wrong places for what only Mom and Dad can give them.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Right Under Your Nose - #5487
All too often we are like I was that busy morning or the disciples were that lunch time in Samaria. We miss the work of God that's right under our nose. In fact, you don't even have to leave your home to do the Lord's work. Actually, the work of God begins at home! That's one reason the qualifications for spiritual leaders in 1 Timothy 3 tell us that it must be someone whose relationship with their spouse and their children is healthy.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Fourth Quarter - It's Ours! - #5492
So now, maybe at a time when you have so many reasons to slack off, to quit, when you've already played hard for a long time, listen to God saying, "Do not be weary in well doing, for in due time you will reap if you do not give up" (Galatians 6:9). Be a fourth quarter husband or wife, be a fourth quarter mom or dad, a fourth quarter friend, or worker, or leader. Be a follower of Jesus who refuses to slack off, to slow down, to head for the showers, to give up. That's how your Savior was for you.
