Kobe Bryant’s death brought shock, tears, and mourning to millions.
Here are 7 things you should know:
- Millions mourn worldwide. Kobe touched millions of lives.
His dedication to be the very best… his “family first” image… his excellence on the court all left a huge impact.
- Sadly, many made him an invincible idol.
Many held Kobe up as an idol and are mentally and emotionally crushed.
- The tragic crash reminds all of us how short and unpredictable life is.
We never know when the end will come… but the end will come.
Everyday we should thank God for our breath. Every day we should never take anyone for granted.
The Bible reminds us, “Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom” (Psalm 90:12 NLT).
- Kobe’s death – and the death of his daughter and others was so unfair.
Nothing in life is guaranteed.
Life is unpredictable.
The rain falls on the just and unjust.
The word of God is filled with examples of unfairness.
There are no adequate answers to the “why?” questions of tragic events.
Only that God is there. In my time of pain and darkness, I called out to God, and He was there for me. The Bible says He is “the God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3).
Many look for a human cause.
Could this tragedy have been avoided?
How do we stop other crashes? One of my employees is a pilot and flight instructor…
He has written a brilliant, learning look at flight safety. You can read it here.
- Now is the time to weep with those who weep.
The Bible says, “Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep” (Romans 12:15 NLT).
- We need to pray for Kobe’s wife, kids, and the other family members of those lost in the crash.
- We must all be ready.
To the famous and the unknown.
To the young and old.
But death is not the end.
Let’s remind friends and family that with death there is judgement. There is heaven and hell.
And Jesus is the one hope.
Jesus is the answer to the destination of eternal life.
