Denzel Washington Tells College Grads to Put God First
In a video that went viral this year, Academy Award-winning Christian actor Denzel Washington told college graduates at Dillard University in May to “put God first” in everything they do and added that everything he has accomplished in this life was due to “the grace of God”. In his commencement speech at the university, he also stressed the importance of thanking God every day. “I pray that you put your slippers under your bed tonight, so that when you wake up in the morning you have to get on your knees to reach them. And while you’re down there, say thank you," he said. "Thank you for grace, thank you for mercy, thank you for understanding, thank you for wisdom, thank you for parents...True desire in the heart for anything good is God’s proof to you, sent beforehand, to indicate that it’s yours already." Amen to that.
