I watched the Saddam cell phone video today. Although it was one of the most just and deserved executions in our history, there is still tragedy there.
I can’t help but think, here was a man who lived his life turning away from the one true God and will live an eternity separated from God. No matter how cruel and mercilessly he lived his life, it is still horrible that even to the point of his death he chose a lie over the truth.
No one that I know has earned this tragedy more than Saddam. Yet, I still wish that at some point he would have chosen God’s truth and love.
Hopefully I can remember Saddam’s death as a reminder to myself to be even more diligent in sharing God’s truth with this world.
