How do we respond when someone is mean to us our attacks us? Jesus shows us how we should respond in Luke 23:26-56.
But Jesus was saying, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” And they cast lots, dividing up His garments among themselves.
Luke 23:34 NASB
This may be one of the most difficult verses to understand. So often we experience people trading us wrongly and we respond by looking for ways to get even or to get ahead. Instead Jesus shows us Berri clearly what it means to forgive others. He had been wrongly accused and is being unjustly punished, yet he forgives the people. Are we so focused doing anything, enduring anything, to bring people to Jesus Christ that we would overlook and forgive the wrong that people have committed against us?
