10 Star Wars Quotes That Are Backed by Scripture

3. “The ability to speak does not make you intelligent.”

Boy isn’t that the truth! Qui-Gon Jinn was definitely onto something here. Some may call it wisdom, others might call it common sense. Whatever the case, this is one of the Star Wars quotes that rings true of several scriptural references. Just flip through the book of Proverbs if you don’t believe me!

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” (Ephesians 4:29)

“The soothing tongue is a tree of life, but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit.” (Proverbs 15:4)  

“What goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.” (Matthew 15:11)

4. “Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”

Yoda’s words of wisdom are perfect for when you find yourself falling into a trap of fear, anger or hatred. Often, these emotions are rooted in faulty communication. Remember the wise words of Yoda, and when in doubt, flip to Proverbs 10:12: “Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs.”

5. “Sometimes we must let go of our pride and do what is requested of us.”

I don’t recommend using this one on your wife when it’s time to make dinner, but Padme’s advice holds truths of sacrifice, humility, and submission that are supported by faith and scripture.

“Where there is strife, there is pride, but wisdom is found in those who take advice.” (Proverbs 13:10)

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” (Philippians 2:3-4)

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)
