We Don’t Know What We’re Doing

It is Good Friday. Luke wrote in his Gospel:

When they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him there, along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left. 34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” – Luke 23:33-34 (NIV)

I wonder if Jesus still asks the Father to forgive us because we don’t know what we’re doing. When we hurt those whom we love, do we know what we’re doing? When we complain to God about our situations and circumstances, do we know what we’re doing? When we sin against God, do we know what we’re doing? Yet God, in His goodness and grace, continues to forgive us even though we have no idea what we’re doing. Jesus was beaten, tortured and crucified because we don’t know what we’re doing. Remember His sacrifice today for by it you have been saved, forgiven and set free. Even though we don’t know what we’re doing, God knows what He’s doing. He’s loving, forgiving and transforming each of us by His love.
