Ever planned a big birthday party? Looked forward to being able to do something when you reach a certain age?

Tomorrow South Africans have the opportunity tocelebrate 21 years of freedom. Freedom from what? Apartheid and segregation.

A harder question is what have we been set free for? Cynics might say: ‘for corruption, hate crimes and xenophobia!’

Here is what I believe we’ve been set free for: ‘Exercise your freedom by serving God, not by breaking the rules. Treat everyone you meet with dignity. Love your spiritual family. Revere God. Respect the government.’ (1 Peter 2:16-17 http://bit.ly/1ErJaiM)
