Forgive
I express my Christ nature when I choose forgiveness.

As I let my genuine forgiveness extend to all, I let go of any thoughts of condemnation or retaliation and offer my sincere compassion. When Jesus said, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing,” he was expressing his Christ nature—pure love—during his ultimate moment of challenge.

I, too, can call upon my Christ nature to forgive. This kind of mercy is rooted in loving understanding and a compassionate heart. As I have forgiven, so I now receive. No longer holding myself or others in condemnation frees me to experience life with a peaceful attitude sourced in wholeness and love.

Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.”—Luke 23:34
