Society is filled with people who have no forgiveness. We judge, ridicule and try to come up with the next sarcastic zinger to roast someone. Escalation of situations that could have been resolved in their infancy are full blown Hatfield and McCoy level feuds because people did not possess the unceasing ability of Jesus to forgive. Jesus was able to forgive even in the midst of extreme situations like being on the cross:
Luke 23:34 NIV Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.
Jesus found the strength to forgive even though he had been mercilessly mocked, beaten and ultimately murdered! Meanwhile we struggle to forgive people for minor infractions like not liking our outfit, or denying the fact that we are the greatest spike ball player on the planet. Seeing how Jesus was able to forgive his persecutors who had done much more to him than anyone else has experienced convicts us as Christians to be able to forgive others who have wronged us regardless of our situations because Jesus was able to forgive in situations worse than us.
