"Jesus said, 'Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.' And they divided up his clothes by casting lots." Luke 23:34

 

Jesus forgave when he could have cursed the world for his breath labored pain and agony. He didn't. Let's forgive those who cause us pain and agony, for what we will find is that forgiveness is what ends up causing us far less pain in the long run.
