GodStoryNow_What_Would_Madiba_do?

How do you feel about the news about Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela?

While we prayerfully watch the news around Madiba unfold, there are hundreds of other people dying in our nation and around the world.

Multiple road accidents and other violent deaths occur daily in SA. 71 dead in Somalia. 123 have been killed in Iraq in the past three days!

It’s so easy to be unmoved by death on a large scale. But each person killed also bears God’s image, also has world-changing potential just like Madiba.

Of Madiba, Jesus might say: Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Matthew 5v9.

Will you be called a ‘child of God’ too?
