Don’t Give In To The Dark Side

January 12th, 2011


Psalm 34

Life is a matter of choices–good and bad. We are commanded to run from evil and do good. Making that choice–a matter of mind, heart, and will to do the right thing–is the exact definition of repentance.

Anakin Skywalker in “Star Wars” became the dreaded Darth Vader. He went from hero and protector of peace to a dark, twisted murderer. He knew the difference between right and wrong, but gave in to his fears. He wanted to control his situation. In the end, fear, anger, and uncontrolled passions–the evil–controlled him.

Trust in the Lord’s unfailing love and strength. Seek after peace in relationship with God and with others with all the energy and intensity you have. Chase after it–peace with God, with each other and especially yourself, free from fear and guilt. That beats the “dark side” any day.
