Nelson Mandela and the Power of Forgiveness

Nelson Mandela, the South African liberator of hearts and minds, has passed away to his Creator. What inspires me most about his life is his capacity to forgive:

“For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” (Matthew 6:14-15)

Few human beings in history have embodied this Christian principle of forgiveness better than Nelson Mandela.

May he rest in peace.
