Morals of the Clone Wars 1.19: Storm Over Ryloth

Moral: “It is a rough road that leads to the heights of greatness.”

Having just gone through Holy Week into Easter, Jesus’ life and example is a stark reminder of the path of greatness He calls us to follow on. Today, too many people seek an easy path to success. Casinos and lotteries are commonplace. People do whatever they need to (at the expence of others) to rise up.

Ephesians tells us that Christ’s greatness comes through His humility. He descended into greatness, choosing to serve His creation. Obviously, His path to greatness was a rough road, leading to whipping, flogging and ultimately death. Not just any death, but the worst possible death that the ancient Romans could imagine.

Christ has beckoned us to follow Him–to deny ourselves and pick up our cross. Though the world may think otherwise, this is the true path of greatness. But we have the choice to take the rough road, or to seek false greatness on the easy path.
