nelson mendela

You will achieve more in this world through acts of mercy than you will through acts of retribution. ― Nelson Mandela

 

Choose a country that you feel bitterness or anger towards. It can be a place that has wronged you or your family. Maybe it’s a place where the leaders have or are hurting their own people or using them to hurt others. Pray a prayer of blessing on them. Pray that God will bring them back through love, kindness and justice, not hatred or revenge.

 

Bless your enemies; no cursing under your breath. Romans 12:14 (MSG)

 

 

(Post in honor of  the life and courage of Nelson Mandela. May we all have the courage to stand up for justice and peace with love and mercy.)
