The world expects us to give one, and only one, chance to get it right. It expects us to hold a grudge when we’ve been hurt; to place ourselves as far away from the person who wronged us as possible. We are expected to love the people who love us, but only for as long as we think they deserve it
But, because Jesus, as he was murdered, cried out, “Father, forgive them!”, we should flip the expectations. We should follow His example and be shining criminals in this dark world we live in.
