Remember that one person (or more, maybe dozens) you can vividly hauntingly recall hurting you for just a reason they only thought worthy.

Even Jesus endured things as we go through.Going to process it and go through these things is not, what he had intentioned.  When Cain slew Abel, it was as the worst of the worst had been done in God's sight.

Going on and letting it happen wasn't God's warrant for life to Cain. He marked him to protect him as though it were ok. But let's just see why he saved him.

Cain was jealous that his 'bro' has gotten more favor, more invested interest in his tepid life, so to be interpretted by Cain.

Many today can relate that some have it "better" than they do, or more than normal.  This is how Cain felt.  And he was pushed, but God forgave him. We aren't supposed to kill. That is wrong, though it's done daily I suppose. So how do we forgive others that take it as their right of passage. Like Cain. How do WE forgive them.

This is how. And it applies to all who will forgive, willingly.

Matthew 7:5 (chap 7, verse 5) 

Thou (you) hypocrite, first cast out the beam from own eye, and then shall you see learly to cast out the mote out of the brother's eye.

It seems that even the verse is saying the "mote is larger in the brothers' eye, than the beam in mine eye."  A mote is a beam.  God knows how we think. Trust him, he knows.

So ...Matthew, 7;12 (chap 7 verse 12)

Therefore all things whatsoever you would expect man to do to you, do ye even so to them; for this is the law and the prophets.

I would think that means forgiving them.  The greatest gift one can give.

Luke 12:48 (chap 12 verse 48)

For unto whomsoever much is given,of him, shall be much required; and to whom even have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

I believe this is refering to how we emulate Jesus. He had much power, and much was required, which is whey we need deep respect for His life, death and resurrection, and it's a good thing to emulate on our respect for others. Every moment.

Luke 12: 29,30-31  (chap 12: verses 29-30-31.)

And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be of a doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after; and your father knoweth that you have need of these things. But rather seek the kindom of GOD; and all these things shall be added unto you. Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell that you have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches, nor moths corrupt.

Since that, how many times has human condition been placed on the right to kill others. For justifiable reasons.

In respect of directing what it meant here to sell all that we have and give to the poor, it's showing the most love possible to those who have nothing.  SO if someone is giving their all, and saving another from death, that is also what most people won't or don't want to do, for fear they will be out in the cold.  But if many scores of people get together since we are His eyes, ears, hands and feet, with big hearts, and minds we can save many with working together.  SO when we put our efforts off of those ''who wronged us'', we are able to give more time/ help to people who are needing it.

For unto whom much is given much will also be required.  When we take our minds off those who have wronged us,  or just abandoned us, we that have much or had much, once, can also give back to others having little or nothing.  Even poor people help other poor people a lot.
