Guilt

“Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny.” -Yoda, “Star Wars”

In its most obvious sense, this statement is not true. Even if you start down the path or sin, it doesn’t have to dominate you forever. Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose again on the third day to insure that you can turn away from sin and come to Him. You can always choose to repent. However, that is the obvious application behind this quote. The way I take it is different. If you start down the dark path of sin, even if you repent and turn away from it you will remember what you did forever. The memories of that dark time will never go away. It doesn’t have to go so far as to dominate your destiny, but it can. At least it will be a nagging sensation in the back of your mind forever. So what can be done about this? The obvious. Don’t start down that path. And if you find yourself on it, turn away immediately. You will be stuck with the guilt forever, but if you confess your wrongdoing to the Lord and whomever holds authority over you (parents are an excellent example), you will feel better. You really will. I’m sure I sound like a cliche, but you will be surprised by how much of an impact coming clean and starting fresh will have on you.

Tenses: the Past, Present, and Future

“I never look back, darling. It distracts from the now.” – Edna Mode, “The Incredbles”

Wise words, those. And very Christian, too. Think about it; what does the Bible say about looking back and paying mind to the now? There are many Bible verses on this same topic, and lets not forget Lot’s wife who looked back and became a pillar of salt. It can be easy to look back with worry or shame and forget to live and plan for the future, but that’s exactly what we need to do. The past is gone and nothing will change that. Better to focus on what you can do now to further your life later.

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.”

Vulgarity and Wit

“Vulgarity is no substitute for wit.” -Grannie Grantham, “Downton Abbey”

I honestly can’t agree with this more. It speaks for itself. In today’s world, people will make an extremely crass “joke” and then the rest of the room will act like it’s the funniest thing in the world. Nowadays people tend to hide behind vulgarity and use it as a front so make them seem more clever, when really, vulgarity is not wit and is in no way wit. You’re proving your own immaturity, not your cleverness.

Dreams and Wishes

“Just because you wish for something, doesn’t make it true.” -Tiana, “The Princess and the Frog”

America today teaches that you can do whatever you want to do. You can be whatever you want to be. You can make it work. That’s a nice fairy tale, isn’t it? It’s not true, not in the real world. No matter how hard you try, there are some things you just will never be able to do. Some talents you just don’t have. Just because you want it and work for it does not guarantee that it will happen. And when you do realize that this is what’s happened to you, don’t let it get you down. Find something else. Everybody has talents; you just haven’t found yours yet.

The Small Things

“Drinking tea with a total stranger is one of life’s true delights.” -Uncle Iroh, “Avatar: the Last Airbender”

What can I say; Uncle Iroh has a lot of good quotes. :3 With this one, my point is this: Celebrate the small things in life. Now I’m not saying that you need to drink tea with a total stranger; that’s just unwise. But having a good conversation with someone over a good cup of tea is one of those small but fun things that we often forget to do in the midst of our busy lives. It’s the equivalent of “take time to smell the roses.” Notice and appreciate the small moments in life, and take the time to make them happen. Because years from now, you’ll no doubt be surprised by what you remember through the years and what you’ve forgotten with time.

Asking for Help

“There is nothing wrong with letting people who love you help you.” -Uncle Iroh, “Avatar: the Last Airbender”

Once again, Uncle Iroh is completely correct. Life as a Christian is a long and narrow road, and there are bumps in it. Whether these bumps come from sin that we need to forsake or outside influences that are beyond our control, they can cause us to stumble. If you have a battle with a particular sin and you know that you can’t overcome it alone, ask for help! Ask for prayer from fellow Christians, and ask for advice from people you can trust, such as your parents or guardians, pastor, or any other godly person in your life. If they love you, they will be only too willing to help. And if the struggle is from the outside and you just don’t know where to turn, ask the people who love you! At the very least you can receive comfort and a person to rant to, and most of the time you’ll get some real, tangible help too. So when the road in front of you gets bumpy, don’t try to figure it out yourself. Let people help you.

Responding to Criticism

“All mentors have a way of seeing more of our faults than we would like. It’s the only way we grow.” – Padme Amadala, “Attack of the Clones”

Well ain’t that a hard lesson to learn? Nobody likes criticism, and yet, if our mentors and teachers are to do their job and help us grow, they have to alert you to all the things you’re doing wrong—or sometimes even more interesting, all the stuff that you could be doing better. While we don’t like criticism of any kind, constructive criticism is absolutely necessary for growth in virtually any subject. So, while we don’t have to learn to like it, per say, criticism is something that we all need of learn to accept and appreciate.
