Read this verse in the Bible this morning:
“For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.”
I see this as saying that whenever you’re discouraged, just look what Jesus went through! Sarcasm, disbelief, rejection, hate, physical torture….you name it, He got it. But still He was able to say at the cross, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” I want to remember that whenever something doesn’t go quite right or the way I want it to today: 1.) Jesus had it worse, and 2.) forgive immediately.
