Something to think about.
34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Luke 23:34 (NIV)
After being scourged, humiliated, insulted, abused, wrongfully accused and condemned He still prays for those who have committed this heinous act. He did not ask God for justice, revenge, or their condemnation. He asks God to forgive them. Still He is asking God to do the same thing for us.
