Kobe Bryant & Daughter Dead…Remember Your Creator in the Days of Your Youth…

Kobe & His Daughter Gianna

Ecclesiastes 12:1 – Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;

This is the scripture that flooded my mind with the sad news of the passing of basketball great Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna Bryant.

He was 41 years young, she was 13.

Still so much living to do!

I pray they knew and accepted Jesus as Lord.

For in the end, neither money nor riches, fame nor fortune or the power of youth matters to the state of our souls.

Jesus is all the hope we have when all else is gone and each man must walk this road alone!

My thoughts and prayers are with his family as they grapple with this terrible tragedy.

May God comfort and guide them through this transition.

Do people die before their time? Is there ever an untimely death?

What do you think?

  1. To us, it seems as though people die an untimely death, but the Bible tells us God has numbered our days. Still, the news of people dying young is hard to accept. My prayers go out to the Bryant family.

    1. I hear you, so so sad, sometimes the human mind asks the human questions. Thank you for your answer. Much love to you.

  3. My prayers goes out the family.I lost a father at 8 years and every news of death sinks differently to me.May God comfort them during this trying time

    1. We pray for his family. Thank you.

  4. I belief all death is untimely, as it was never Jehovah Godโ€™s purpose for us to die in the first place. Iโ€™m grateful for the sacrifice of Jesus Christ as this allows us to gain everlasting life as originally purposed. I look forward to the days mentioned at Revelation 21:3,4 and John 5:28,29 when we will see our loved ones again in peace, free from all suffering. Many prayers to the families affected by this devastating loss. May they gain comfort and strength to endure this very difficult time.

    1. Amen, thanks for your point of view.

  5. We die when it’s our time.

    1. Thanks for your point of view. Blessings

  8. This is such a terrible tragedy. We do need to live as if it is our last day on earth. Praying for the family and friends of all the victims. I believe some deaths are untimely. I am ttying to remember the bible verse that speaks of this. If someone remebers they can post it.

    1. I wonder about that, but I know that our footsteps are ordered… but again Our ways are not God’s ways…

  9. ๐Ÿ˜ข and exactly why we are to
    be ready. 27 Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, 28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.”โ€” Hebrews 9:27-28 (NIV)

  10. Amen, I join your prayer and sentiment. God bless and direct this family in this extreme time of loss. โ™ฅ
