As the world celebrates Star Wars Day, I chanced on a ChurchLeaders article on Star Wars quotes that (might) work in sermons. (Disclaimer: Please take this tongue-in-cheek! Don’t use these in sermons and blame me for getting fired for turning to the dark side!)

  1. “Who’s more foolish? The fool or the fool who follows him?” — Obi-Wan
  2. “The ability to speak does not make you intelligent.” — Qui-Gon Jinn
  3. “Sometimes we must let go of our pride and do what is requested of us.” — Padme
  4. “Always pass on what you have learned.” — Yoda
  5. “Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.” — Yoda
  6. “Your focus determines your reality.” — Qui-Gon Jinn
  7. “In my experience there is no such thing as luck.” — Obi-Wan
  8. “The belonging you seek is not behind you…it is ahead.” — Maz Kanata
  9. “Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny.” —Yoda
  10. “Your eyes can deceive you. Don’t trust them.” — Obi-Wan

Bonus: “All mentors have a way of seeing more of our faults than we would like. It’s the only way we grow.” — Padme
Double bonus: “I find your lack of faith disturbing.” — Darth Vader

The article ends appropriately, which is my prayer to you too,

So, this May the 4th, we’d like to say: May the Holy Spirit be with you, in you and working through you!
