Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up His garments by casting lots.
Two words so honest… but only when spoken from the one who knows. A simple apology, so hopeful and so pure… to amend a wrong….a sincere gesture of grace and reflective of a higher and unconditional love…the greatest type of love.
Two words so powerful… allowing the process of forgiveness to finally begin. To mend the brokenhearted, the wronged, the abused…and all of those who believe. A thickened salve to heal a past insult and lessen the pain of an unfortunate indiscretion…A sincere gesture of a higher greater mercy and reflective of a higher and unconditional love…the greatest type of love.
Two words so pure… but only if released from the lips of the one who speaks its continual song. Its melody comforts not only the wounded, but also the one who holds the weapon. Disarming the attacker and releasing the real prisoner from within dark and unforgiving walls…A sincere gesture of human love and reflective of the greatest type of love….a love which forgives a past unspoken apology.
Two words yet so painful when left unsung. No reconciliation for the one who cannot utter a mere two words. A growing silence which festers and destroys our only current hope. The pride of humanity tried to slaughter this love…. …yet He asked for forgiveness for all those who could not find two words to say.
When you looked out among the crowd of your vicious attackers…Did you see me standing there?
I am one of the forgiven,
I was present and silent among the crowd…
