“Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”
Luke 23:34 NIV
Jesus Christ was treated as poorly as any human ever has been treated by others in history to the point of death…and yet as He hung on the Cross in which He was crucified on for our sins, He spoke the words above…He prayed for forgiveness for others.
If we do not find the way to forgive others it is us who will be destroyed…not those who have wronged us…no matter what they did.
“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. 38 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
Luke 6:37-38 NIV
