My Daily Devotional


Be An Encourager

“Words from a wise man’s mouth are gracious, but a fool is consumed by his own lips.”
Ecclesiastes 10:12

I have always heard the saying that sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me. That statement is not true, in fact, words may not break our bones, but they certainly can damage our spirits. I will always remember the words from my grandmother as I grew up, as they were always encouraging words and words that built me up and made me think that I could do anything and accomplish anything in my life. I know what her words meant to me and how they helped me develop my self esteem and self worth. I have always thought as I have raised my own family if I was doing the same thing for them as my grandmother did for me, and build them up to think they could do anything and be anything they wanted to be. My grandmother was so skillful in making people think they were special, and everyone who knew her liked to be around her as she made everyone feel good about themselves. This was her gift from God and she used it to the fullest extent possible. Positive words from someone wise and respected will stay with us forever, but negative words, used without love, may be more harmful than a physical hurt. We can recover from a physical hurt, but we will always remember the hurtful words spoken to us, as they will be engraved in our minds. The Bible is full of encouraging, wonderful words of promise to each of us. My desire is that the words spoken out of my mouth are words of encouragement and inspiration to others.

Robert William Brock, Jr. I was born in Pineville, Kentucky, the son of Robert William Brock and Irene Napier, I grew up in the beautiful southeastern part of Kentucky.

Early in my career I became interested in Health Care Administration and spent the rest of my career in Hospital Administration, where I retired after 45 years. After retiring from health care I have devoted the past ten years to a ministry, having founded and directed the Nehemiah Network, which provides assistance to the needy people in our area, by bringing together the numerous community organizations, churches and businesses to work collectively to meet the community needs. The Nehemiah Network concept has now spread throughout the nation and over 10,000 programs have been developed, in almost all the states, adopting the framework of the Network. I am a published author of 17 Christian books, and have spent over thirty years tracing my ancestors and writing a book about my Kentucky Heritage.
