Wisdom from Superhero movies

I went to see the movie "Fantastic 4: The Rise of the Silver Surfer" this past week. I used to read a lot of Fantastic 4 and Spiderman comic books, so in spite of mixed reviews, I still enjoyed watching my heroes come to life on the big screen.

The Silver Surfer is the servant of an incredibly powerful space entity called Galactus. The Surfer's job is to fly around the universe on his cosmic surf board looking for suitable planets for Galactus to devour. Galactus saps a planet's energy to sustain himself, leaving the planet and it's inhabitants lifeless. The Surfer summons Galactus to Earth and tells Susan Storm, member of the Fantastic Four, that Galactus is coming and they only have a short time to live.

Susan asks the Surfer, "Why are you doing this?"The Surfer answers, "I have no choice."Susan then says, "You always have a choice."This reminds me of the Spiderman III movie when Peter Parker's (aka Spiderman) aunt says: "Remember, Peter, you always have the choice to do the right thing."

One of the greatest gifts that God has given human beings is the power to choose. You can choose to follow God, or to go your own way. You can choose to hold a grudge, or to forgive. You can choose despair, or hope. Ultimately, your choices will determine the kind of person you are, the quality of your relationships, and what becomes of your life.

Remember... you always have a choice.
