“The greatest teacher, failure is.”
-- Yoda, Star Wars: The Last Jedi
They just showed the latest Star Wars film here. This quote from it hit me hard. There are so many spiritual parallels to the biblical record in the Star Wars franchise: how we fight not against flesh and blood but against spiritual principalities in high places, the force being the Spirit of God holding all things together and available to all who seek it, and the Jedi being the powerful prophets of old who are called to protect and fight against the "prophets of Baal," if you will. But my favorite parts of all the Star Wars movies revolve around Yoda. This almost-1000-year-old Master Jedi has said some of the most profound things I've ever heard, and the above quote is one of them.
