My Daily Devotional

Signs Of The Time

“When evening comes, you say, It will be fair weather, for the sky is red, and in the morning, Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast. You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.”
Matthew 16:2-3

Jesus criticized the leaders of his day for focusing on the weather and ignoring the signals in the above scripture. With the tragedies of the past years such as 9/11, Iraq, tsunami and Katrina I believe God is sending us a message, and I think we’d be wise to pay attention. The most immediate impression I take away from these tragedies is that all the possessions these people had accumulated during their lives are now gone. They had them one day and they were gone the next day. This is how fast God can take away things that people have worked a lifetime for. Another thing I gather from these tragedies is the true nature of people. There have been countless acts of kindness, giving and sacrifice on people trying to help other people. At the same time there have also been countless acts of people taking advantage of others by looting, robbing, rape and murder. This indicates that we are a people of both dignity and depravity. The hurricane blew off more than roofs; it blew the mask off the nature of mankind, and revealed the real self of many people. I believe God is telling us something, and that is that we need to wake up as a country and rebuild not only what was taken away by these disasters, but that we need to rebuild ourselves from the inside. We need to be changed by God from the inside out as I believe these disasters are a sign of the times.

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.
