What I Have Learned from Death

Kobe Bryant and eight other people, including his 13 year old daughter Gigi, tragically died on Sunday, January 27, 2020.

The deaths seem to be a shock to many people.

Kobe Bryant in particular, was an all American, amazing basketball player. He was 41 years old, with a beautiful wife, Vanessa and 4 daughters.

When anyone dies, it makes me sad.

The death of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gigi was a bit shocking for me though.

He and his daughter were so young.

Kobe Bryant seem to have a life that most people can only dream of and yet he died.

Death does not discriminate. Death does not care how old you are, how successful you are or how good of a person you are.

Death will happen to all of us one day and we do not know when that day is.

These tragic deaths gave me the chance to reflect on my own mortality and the mortality of the people I love the most.

What would I do if I was in their love ones shoes?

Would I cling to God or spiral out of control?

These questions made me realize that I have much more work to do in my walk with God.

I need to cling to God even more than I already do.

God is the only light in this troubled world.

When everyone and everything falls away, God is the constant in this ever changing world.

Job was able to lose everything, including his family and still cling to God.

I hope to always cling to God through all times and especially times of sorrow.

This bible verse is now a blessing to me and I hope it blesses you.

Ecclesiastes 7:3 (NLT)

Sorrow is better than laughter, for sadness has a refining influence on us.
