Learn to Forgive Like Jesus - by Joyce Meyer Ministries daily devotion 15 January Monday

Although my father and my mother have abandoned me, Yet the Lord will take me up [adopt me as His child].
                                 — Psalm 27:10
I once heard about a teenager who was drinking and caused an accident that killed a man’s wife and child. The man knew God wanted him to forgive the young man who caused the accident, and through much prayer he was able to let the love of God flow through him.
That man knew how to forgive like Jesus. He understood that this young man was also hurt himself and needed healing.
When people hurt us, we should learn to look at what people have done to themselves instead of just looking at what they have done to us, because hurting people hurt people. Usually, when a person hurts someone else, he’s probably hurting himself at least as much and is suffering as a result. That’s why, as He hung on the cross in agony, Jesus said of His murderers, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
That’s incredible forgiveness. Let that inspire you today. We all need to seek to forgive like Jesus.
