Luke 23:34 Devotional

‭‭Luke‬ ‭23:34‬ Daily Devotional

 

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

Observations:

Jesus forgave his accusers and murderers while they were in the process of killing him and dividing up his possessions. He claimed ignorance (“they don’t know what they’re doing”) on their behalf.

Applications:

If Jesus can forgive people in this circumstance, we can surely forgive people in less extreme situations. There’s no reason to hold a grudge against anyone.

Prayer:

Thank you for your forgiveness. Help me to forgive at all times and without hesitation. Help me to forgive as you forgave: unconditionally. I want to be more like you. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
