6. “Great, kid. Don’t get cocky.”
Han Solo’s take on a warning against pride is one of those perfect Star Wars quotes for everyday life. Who hasn’t accomplished something and immediately gotten a big head about it. Solo nips that junk right in the bud, as does the prophet, Jeremiah.
“This is what the LORD says: ‘Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches, but let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,’ declares the LORD.” (Jeremiah 9:23-24)
7. “Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny.”
I feel like if we wanted to get REAL deep with this Yoda quote, it could go a number of different ways. In using it in your everyday life, it could be something as simple as replacing “you are what you eat” with this little green character’s words of wisdom. In other cases, you could literally school someone who has begun down the destructive path of harmful decisions. Thankfully, unlike this Star Wars quote, our future in Christ is not determined by our dark past. Still, our decisions now do SHAPE our future, and the trials and consequences we may face on our own accord.
“For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, he has rejected you as king.” (1 Samuel 15:23)
8. “In my experience, there is no such thing as luck.”
Obi-Wan for another win. You may use this Star Wars quote to respond to someone encouraging you with the phrase “good luck.” Whether you’re a fan of Star Wars or not, the Biblical parallel here is easy to see. With God there is no luck, just pure faith, and blessings that pour out from it.
“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
9. “Somebody has to save our skins.”
Princess Leia knows what’s up. Probably deep in a crisis of galaxies far far away, the bold reign proves that even the most powerful rulers need saving. Of course, we know that whether you live in a palace with servants and maids, or on a farm in Greene County, Virginia, every soul on earth needs someone to “save our skins.” And ultimately save us FROM our sins.
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)
10. “Well done, my good and faithful Jedi”
If you’re like me and see your kids as your own personal Jedis that you get to raise and shape and form, you might find yourself saying this Star Wars quote in proud moments. It’s unlikely, but still, this one of the wildly popular Star Wars quotes is the most obvious parallel to scripture in that it is LITERALLY Luke 19:17, with the change of one word: “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” Ironically enough, Luke Skywalker is the one who quoted this notable quip.
