Nelson Mandela has passed away and the world media is awash with the history and stories of the man - As is the social media which contains so many opposing arguments both for and against the legacy of the man - People are engaging one another in defence of their opinion and frankly some of the debate is without fact or truth and reflects the personal opinion of said person.
The undeniable truth (politics apart) is that the conduct of the man within the legal system of the country of birth was tested in court and found wanting of the law of the land and the court imposed sanction - Guess what - that is how all countries work!
But what about the character of the man, what about the strength of conviction, belief, compassion, forgiveness, love and service - Is that not what the world is reflecting today?
Our Heavenly Father is the only one that will judge Nelson Mandela on these aspects - none of us have the right or authority to do so - Hell man God has being doing it a lot longer than we have and He is better at it than any of us may believe we are!
Condolences to those left behind - May God give you rest and peace at this time - God Bless
