Morals of the Clone Wars 2.12: The Mandalore Plot

Moral: “If you ignore the past, you jeopardize your future.”

We must learn from the past, live in the present and hope in the future. Some try to live in the future and jeopardize the present as they ignore what is in front of them. Others live in the past, giving no hope for their present or future. To fully live in the present we must remember the past and plan for the future, but we must be fully rooted in today otherwise we miss out entirely.

Some churches live in the past, acting fully out of tradition and “they way they’ve always done things.” Essentially, they are ignoring the past–forgetting the lessons learned along the way, forgetting that everything had a beginning, a moment of change. Without change there is no growth, there is no progress. And the past is full of change. When churches ignore that and avoid growth, progress or change, they jeopardize their future as they find themselves in a time of decay and decline. Let us be fully aware of the past–all of it–and move forward into the future.
