People can be quite mean. And when they are, we are called to forgive them. But that can be really hard sometimes, especially if they really hurt us badly. When I have someone I need to forgive I tend to remember the words Jesus spoke when He was hanging on the cross: “Father forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing.” [Luke 23:34]
If Jesus was able to call out forgiveness to the very people who had caused Him the worst suffering possible, then surely I can forgive whoever I need to. Is there someone you need to forgive today?
