Why Darth Vader Is My Favorite Star Wars Character
About 5 hours ago Disney released a surprise clip from the new ‘Star Wars’ movie, “The Force Awakes”. For those of you that don’t know, I love Star Wars. I believe their is so much a person can learn about life just by watching the movie series.
Many people always ask me what is my favorite character. The are often very surprised when I tell them that my favorite character is Darth Vader. The thing I like about Darth Vader is that when you watched him the movie series, there was no doubt, that he was someone that was evil. He was a bully, he didn’t care about taking life, and was someone that people feared.
Even with all these characteristics that make him such a villain, I often think about the clip when Darth Vader was fighting his son Luke Skywalker. Darth and Luke are battle each other and eventually Luke is about to be killed by The Emperor. Darth Vader sees that his son is about to be killed, but in the end saves his son’s life.
This scene really sticks out to me because to me it shows that anyone can change. There are so many people that need to understand that no matter what they have done in life, no matter the mistakes they have made, they can change. The problem I see with most people is that they make excuses why they will not be successful in life. They look at their past failures and use it as a reason why they can’t be successful.
Now I am not saying that you will not have challenges in life or have consequences that you have to deal with due to your past, but you can’t allow yourself to continue to live in the past. For example, some people that have spent time in jail for various reasons when they get out have challenges obtaining work.
One of the things that I believe some don’t consider is starting their own business, especially those that may have sold illegal drugs on the street. It is my opinion that some of the best business men and women are not on wall street, but are behind bars, or out looking for someone to give them a job.
Understand, there is nothing wrong with having a job. In fact at this point in my life I have a nine to five job as a programmer and believe there is nothing wrong with that what soever. What I am trying to stress is that we can’t buy the lie that our past has to shape our future, and we have to remember that with God all things are possible.
The one thing I like about the word of God is that is shows us that no matter what we have done in our lives, through the power of God, we can change.
If Darth Vader as evil as he was could change, I believe that we can change as well especially when take steps of faith.
