Today marks the beginning of a series on the 7 Last Words of Christ.

Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

When Jesus prays this prayer on the cross, he is looking upon those who were crucifying him. This is a reminder to us that we are to forgive others even while they are sinning against us. Our forgiveness should be immediate, free and full, not something we wait to do until those who sin against us are remorseful and repent. Our forgiveness also should not be limited to only minor infractions but for the most major injustices.
