In my continuing commentary on the Lord’s Prayer and Lent, today’s quote comes from Star Trek – specifically the movie “Star Trek IV – The Voyage Home” —
“A ship is a ship.” — Kirk
“Whatever you say…thy will be done.” — Scotty
Now I like Captain Kirk and I love Star Trek. But Scotty needs to find a better place to put his faith!
When we say “thy will be done,” we say it to Someone who can be trusted with our future and our present. Someone who loves us. Someone whose will is better than ours, whose wisdom is deeper, whose understanding is higher.
Captain Kirk may always save the day… but he cannot save our soul.
