Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Most Powerful Person In The Room - #4355
Well, okay, the server's name was officially Jesús. But his unselfish, "What can I do for you?" spirit, offered by a man with Jesus' name, said a lot to my friends. I don't know what his relationship is with Jesus, but he understands how one who bears His name should live.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Honorary Chairman Charade - #4363
Our word for today from the Word of God comes from the words of Jesus Himself beginning in Luke 6:46. He begins with an unsettling question. "Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?" Jesus says, "You're saying the right words. You're giving Me the right title. But I'm not really in charge. You are." Jesus then proceeds with an example that shows the difference between the person who knows what Jesus wants and the person who does what Jesus wants.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Wrong Person's in Front - #4372
If it's Louie's birthday (that's not the name of anyone in our family). then Max shouldn't be pushing himself in front and making himself the self-appointed star of a movie that's supposed to be about someone else. It's really not cute and it really messes up the picture. Just ask God. People have been doing that to Him for a long time.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Mighty Rivers, Mini Beginnings - #4373
The Mississippi River is actually a living example of how God loves to work. Something very big comes from something very small. Something very impressive comes from something very unimpressive. It's how He makes mighty rivers ... and mighty lives.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - What Makes You Really Valuable - #4376
If you're trying to do what's right in an environment where most everyone is else is doing what's wrong, you get to feeling kind of lonely sometimes, don't you? And even weird? In fact, the people you work with or play with or go to school with may basically tell you that you're weird because you don't do the things they do. And, after a while, that can start to wear on you and even wear down your resistance. And you get tired of being "weird."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Hijackers in the Church - #4380
Now that's one place you wouldn't expect to find hijackers - in the church. Oh, but they're there. If a hijacker is someone who tries to take over what belongs to someone else, to use it for their own ends, well then we've got quite a few hijackers in the church.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Untouchable Worth - #4624
From the time that egg and sperm came together to begin you, God was creating an original and building into you the qualities and the experiences and the capabilities to make a unique difference, to "do good works which God prepared in advance for you to do." You're an original! You're priceless - unless you become a copy of someone else, in which case you go for cheap.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Surprising Secret of Greatness - #4213
If you've listened much to what Jesus says about leadership, these recent "discoveries" shouldn't be a great surprise to you. In Mark 10, beginning with verse 42, our word for today from the Word of God, Jesus presents what most people believe about being a leader - and then the truth according to Jesus.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Bigger Than You Realize - #4237
The problem is we start to believe we are what other people have called us, what they've said about us. If you've been hurt a lot, abused a lot, put down a lot, you really start to believe that you can't be worth much. Or maybe it isn't what people have called you - it's the way they've treated you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Bad News from a Good Friend - #4669
What's more important is when we have emotional or spiritual food on our face. Our personality is unzipped, our attitude is unbuttoned. If you care about someone, you will lovingly tell that person even the unpleasant truth, and if you're smart you'll respond appreciatively to bad news that comes from a good friend. We're talking about constructive criticism here. We're not tearing someone down. This is constructive.
