Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Unpacking Before You Get Home - #5048
You don't carry it all in the door with you. You kind of unpack all the people of your day and, as they say, focus on the family. Leave your work at work and get ready to be with your family - not just around your family, but with your family.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Bible Bloating - #5073
You're not supposed to just factualize what God says, you're supposed to actualize what God says by consciously putting it into practice in some part of your life today. You are reading to change!

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Dream Boss - #5083
Your work is going to be for the approval of Jesus, looking past your human boss right over his or her shoulder and seeing Jesus there. So that means if you're cooking french fries, you're going to say, "I'm going to be the best french fry cooker they ever had." I'm going to be the best algebra student this algebra teacher has ever seen. Whether I get the best grades or not, I'm going to work as hard as anybody they ever saw. I'm going to be the best shipping clerk, or checkout person, or vice president, or teacher they've ever seen. You'll be known as their hardest worker; one who's on time, who keeps their commitments, who doesn't cut corners, who finishes what they start, who goes the extra mile.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Never Out of Touch - #5182
Here's the life principle: make prayer a lifestyle, not a compartment. It's called "acknowledging the Lord in all your ways" (Proverbs 3:6) - noticing the Lord's presence all through your day. Getting ready in the morning, traveling to work or school, in the house, your car, at your workplace, at a restaurant, a meeting, or as you exercise - getting in touch with your Lord!

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Human Files - #4007
Now, all the time our kids were growing up, we had this tapestry hanging up in our room - it said, "Children learn what they live." I guess. Our recent amusing experience with our grandson was only a reminder of the truth of that. Except the results of children learning what they live often are anything but amusing. Whether you realize it or not, your child, your grandchild - any child you're around very much - is listening, recording, and sooner or later reproducing what they have experienced or witnessed with you.

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 - God's Upgrade System - #4043
We lost our van - only to get back more van than we had before. That modus operandi has been repeated in our life so many times - and in the lives of millions of God's children across the centuries. It is one of the exciting ways of God. He sometimes takes something away to replace it with something much better.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Human Snowplows - #5257
Long after your work is done and your mission has been accomplished, the people in your life will still be there. Don't ever let your work leave them buried by your human snowplow. They matter too much to Jesus for that.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Most Dangerous Season of All - #5322
The truth is that very few of us are able to handle success. If you're experiencing a time of success and pretty smooth sailing right now, it's important to realize that you may be in the spiritual danger zone. When you're flying high, it's all too easy to forget how you got there. Or, more importantly, Who (capital "W"!) - Who got you there.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Softening Up The Enemy - #3907
Some of us have lost some of our battles - or had much tougher battles - because we didn't apply this kind of strategy. If you want to win, take some time to soften up your enemy before you go in to fight the battle. In the military, it's the air war that prepares the way - in spiritual battles, it's the prayer war.
