Life And Leadership Lessons From The Life Of Ravi Zacharias

To be honest, I wasn’t surprised to hear of the passing of Ravi Zacharias. Ravi had been diagnosed with cancer and his prognosis wasn’t good. Yesterday, May 15th, 2020, Ravi Zacharias passed away.

It’s a blow to those in the Christian faith. Ravi was an Indian-born, Canadian-American Christian apologist. He helped many Christians understand their faith better.

I had the opportunity to see him last year at the Catalyst Conference in Atlanta. You can read my notes from Ravi Zacharias here.

Yet, his works will live on for generations. They will continue to touch Christians and non-Christians around the world.

Today, I wanted to reflect on the life of Ravi Zacharias and share some of his insights with you. They will help you become a better leader. More important, they will help you become a better person.

Better Days Ahead

Can I tell you the truth today? The last couple of weeks have been hard.

I had a new job opportunity fell through. My brother-in-law passed away. One of our cars was in a wreck.

Bad things seemed to keep piling on. One thing after the other.

Yet there was one thing I knew I could count on. Better days are ahead.

Better Days Ahead

We all go through seasons where our lives seem out of control. We don’t know what tomorrow will bring. Sometimes we don’t WANT to know what tomorrow will bring.

The days have been so bad. So hard. It seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel.

I want to encourage you today. There is hope. There are better days ahead.

Maybe not tomorrow. Maybe not the next day. But keep placing one foot in front of the other.
