As evening fell on Saturday a violent storm erupted. It was short but devastating and the effects can still be seen. It was almost as if our highveld sky was angry at the departure of our much loved former president as he made the final leg of his journey back to Qunu for his burial service on Sunday. As the media has said it was the end of a very long walk to freedom.
Although I did not watch the full ceremony I admit that I was choked up as the motorcade made their way and his coffin was carried to his final resting place. BUT as sure as the day breaks each morning this world of ours will keep turning and we have to ask ourselves what our own legacies will be on this world? Are we going to do what we can to make it a better place?
Jesus disciples knew that once the great commission had been sounded that their every day would be consumed by their passion for His message and what it meant for all mankind. As the time approaches for us to once again celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus can we awake to the call to make an impact on our world today?
