The Mirror That Loves You - #5847
See, as a mirror for somebody you love, you need to praise their strengths and their insight, their good ideas, their progress and their growth in an area of weakness...even if it's only a little growth. Our constructive criticism needs to come in the context of lots of affirmation, not lots of condemnation - or they won't know that we're saying it because of how much we love them. It's not going to feel like we love them.
The Truth Alarm - #5844
Deceiving, lying, distorting the truth - it starts a spiritual fire that can do so much damage and actually end up consuming you. But inside you lives the Holy Spirit of Almighty God who Jesus called "the Spirit of truth" (John 15:26 ), and He is your inner alarm system to let you know when you've crossed from what's real into what's false.
The End of the Maze - #5828
The way that leads out of the maze; the way that leads to God's forgiveness, to personal peace and to heaven is the Man who died for every sin you have ever done and walked out of His grave to prove that He alone can give eternal life.
Never a Day Without a Sunrise - #5807
Some days you're going to be excited about what's ahead. Other days you're going to be overwhelmed by what's ahead, or some days you may be discouraged, or eager, or exhausted. But however you are, no matter what that day holds, the sun is going to come up again. It always does. And God is going to light this day, no matter what.
Major Gifts, Minor Glitches - #5799
You can complain about the manure, or you can be glad you've got an ox. You can gripe about the glitches or you can give thanks for the gifts. You can be negative because there's a mess, or you can be positive because that mess is the result of progress. And, as any highway construction people know, you can't have progress without having a mess.
Insisting on Driving - #5760
It may be that someone who really loves you has been encouraging you to come to Christ, but you've been too proud to let that happen. Well, that's expensive pride; maybe fatal pride...eternally fatal pride. At the moment God decides our life is over, your eternity is totally in His hands.
A Child In Your Inbox - #5748
God is so serious about our relationship with our children that He even makes it a qualifying standard for anyone who wants to be a spiritual leader.
"Wise" in the Bible: Proverbs 1:1-6
This introduction to the book of Proverbs establishes that these, Solomon's proverbs, are intended to educate us and point out the way to true wisdom. Young or old, wise or foolish, we grow in spiritual maturity as we follow these adages.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - What Brought Down a Big Plane - #8222 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
Here’s a strange headline: “Birds bring down plane.” But that’s exactly what happened to US Air Flight 1549 out of New York—the plane that had to ditch in the Hudson River with 155 people aboard. Some geese flew into the plane’s engines, and it started going down. Something relatively small had the power to bring down something that big. That’s true for planes; that’s true for people.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - Happy Germs - #8212 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
Don't you just love it when one of your coworkers comes in coughing and sneezing all over? Thank you for sharing, pal! There’s recent research that there are some happy germs that people spread around, too. One article said: "We can catch happiness from friends and family members like an emotional virus. The research shows that every happy person in your social network increases your own chance of cheer by 9% and those effects can last up to one year. When someone gets happy, that person's friend experiences a 25% increased chance of becoming happy, and at least two more friends will be affected—happy germs!
