Paralleling Our Father

Jesus Christ, we're so graduatefut that you've taught us the true value of life, forgiveness and how not to waste our time carrying loads of bitterness inside of us ... On account of, when you were being crucified on the Cross, placed between those two criminals(Luke 23:32) you could have asked our Heavenly Father to put an end to all your suffering; however all you did request was this ...

Luke 23:34 (NKJV) - Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” And they divided His garments and cast lots.

If Jesus Christ, encountered being mocked and whipped in public, so that mankind could obtain eternal life, then if someone rolls their eyes at us, fabricates lies and attempts to be our friend for a short period of time. All we have to ask God to teach us how to truly feel this ...

1 Peter 4:8 (NKJV) - And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”

Furthermore, if Jesus Christ kept silent during all the above, therefore please continue to teach us to the same when folks feel the need to toss their misery in our direction. Now, instead of us attacking them back, we'd appreciate if you(Lord) could continue to instill in us a desire to pray for them while we attempt to do this too ...

Isaiah 53:7 (NKJV) - He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth.

Now, go off and delight in this God given Thursday ...
