The very first words of Jesus while on the cross: “Father, forgive them.” Even the soldiers were shocked to hear those words. A river of love unquenchable poured from His heart. When we suffer, we think only of ourselves, our pain, our desire to be relieved from affliction. When Jesus suffered, His heart was focused on others, making sure they would be forgiven. They were harming themselves, not just Jesus.
