With Yoda being long gone, Star Wars had to provide us with a sage to see our main characters through their journey. So we’ve been given wise, aged, quirky Maz Kanata. And she’s already shared a few pearls with us…
Maz Kanta: “The only fight. The fight against the Dark Side. Over the ages, I’ve seen evil take many forms…”
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. ~ Ephesians 6:8 ESV
Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you. Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important. As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God. ~ 1 Corinthians 1:26-29 NLT
Maz Kanata: The belonging you seek is not behind you… it is ahead. I am no Jedi, but I know the Force. It moves through and surrounds every living thing. Close your eyes. Feel it. The light… it’s always been there. It will guide you. The saber. Take it.
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” ~ John 8:12 ESV
