Redeemed from "the dark side"?
I sat down with my husband to ask him what he knew about this character. What he shared was that the character had been a Jedi Knight who went over to the dark side, influenced by the darkness he did indeed become an agent for evil.
Are any of us beyond becoming moved by forces that are less than pure? Are any of us worthy of judging those who fall?
Our hero, Luke Skywalker could not even believe that someone as "bad" as Darth was his father, not until Darth gave up his own life to save him.
I'm reminded of the words of the preacher in Cowboys and Aliens:
"Sometimes good men do bad things. And sometimes very bad men do good things."
I need the gavel taken from my hand, for there is only One able to know all the facts and details, only One Who is worthy to judge the hearts of man.
Will you agree with me in prayer, asking the Lord to impart more of His grace into our hearts and lives?
People of the Second Chance ask us to raise our voices for second chances, to overthrow judgement and liberate love. Will you join us?
