Read John 19:23-25
Jesus did not own much of anything. And much of what He did own, including His clothes, was given to Him by others. So when the soldiers gambled for Jesus' clothes at the Cross, it was truly sad that they were so selfish and cared so little for Jesus. Psalm 22:18 foretells, hundreds of years before it happened, how the Roman soldiers would gamble for Jesus' clothes: "They divide my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast lots."
Jesus shows us His example of what we are to do when others do something wrong to us. He asks for forgiveness from His Father for those who were crucifying Him. Listen to what He prays in Luke 23:34, "Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing." Isn't this a great example of how we should treat those who are mean or unkind to us? We need to pray for them. We also need to forgive them.
