My Daily Devotional

Our Legacy

“As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.”
Psalm 103:15-16

The above scripture depicts how insignificant our life is in the big scheme of things. We are here for only a season, and all that will be left of us is the legacy that we leave behind. All our worldly and material possessions that we have accumulated will be gone, and all that will be left is the little things that our children and grandchildren will remember of us. Our future generations will only recognize our names and will have no further knowledge of our existence on this earth. Our place in this world could be compared to the analogy of placing our hand in a bucket of water and removing it; after the water stills and the ripples subside there is nothing left. Therefore we need to live our lives, not with the desire to accumulate great wealth as we cannot take this with us, but need to concentrate our lives to leave a legacy that will carry on after we are gone. Our efforts need to be to do what is right and good and to be remembered by our families, friends and everyone as being an example of someone who made a difference in the lives of others. This is the way that we need to be remembered and our legacy should be reflective of this. Even though my grandfather has been gone many years his legacy is still remembered by all who knew him and his future generations. This is the type of legacy I aspire to leave for my children, my grandchildren and my future generations and would be happy to be compared with my grandfather. Even before we were born God had a plan for our lives. The legacy we leave behind needs to be built on this plan of God which is to make Him first in all we do, and to obey and follow His commands. This takes careful study of the Bible and prayer as this is where we will learn the wisdom it has to offer. The Godly legacy we leave behind will also secure us the promise of an eternal home in Heaven, which will be our reward.

About robertwbrock

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. I attended Union College in Barbourville, Kentucky graduating with a degree in Business Administration and Accounting. 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. My books are listed below: “Our Kentucky Heritage” “My Daily Devotional” "My Daily Devotional Volume II" "My Daily Devotional Volume III" "My Daily Devotional Volume IV" "My Daily Devotional Volume Six" "My Daily Devotional Volume Seven" "God’s Plan for the Family” " God’s Plan for a Father” "God's Plan for a Joy Filled Life" "The Silent Church" "God's Plan For Financial Freedom" "Living Without Sin" "My Kentucky Heritage" "Brock Family Cookbook" All of my books can be ordered at by typing in my name Robert William Brock, Jr. As part of my ministry I write a free daily devotional which is distributed on a daily basis to over 2 million people daily via e-mail.
