Father, Forgive Them

Jesus in His deepest pain on the cross taught us the ultimate lesson on forgiveness. He prayed for those who were crucifying Him while being tormented on the cross!! 

Jesus said “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34). Anger and Revenge would have been on the natural man mind, but when the divine speaks, only moral perfection is uttered. 

Dear friends, you may feel revengeful to those who hurt you. But ask God to give you the power of forgiveness. Jesus not only forgave those who crucified Him but also prayed for them. Forgiveness opens the gates of heaven to us. Forgive and pray for someone who hurt you. Be like Christ who is our example to emulate. Love is powerful because it can turn enemies into friends. Revenge only exacerbates the hatred leading to wars and loss. Choose the narrow path that leads to the kingdom. Unfortunately, only few choose this path. 

May God bless you.
