Become a Superhero – Day 29 – Defeat Green Goblin

Defeat Green Goblin

Defeat Green Goblin

The last member of the Sinister Six should traditionally be Doctor Octopus, but we’re going to use Green Goblin instead. In my opinion, Green Goblin is one of Spidey’s greatest foes. A lot of personal tragedy comes to Peter Parker on behalf of the Goblin, and the same can happen to us if we aren’t careful.

Goblin is a two faced villain. He has a split personality, and often argues with himself. He is also a harsh villain, often attacking people whom he personally knows. He may even be “friends” with the people he attacks.

We must be careful not to emulate Goblin. That may seem far-fetched, but it happens more often than you would think. Many times people will do things that seem nice, but they won’t do it for the right reasons. In another sense, many times people act nice to someone to their face, but will say ugly things about them behind their back. This isn’t a way to share love.

In everything we do, it is important to act in love.

1 Corinthians 13 (ESV)

1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. 4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known. 13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
