WATCH: Denzel Washington To Graduates: “Put God First In EVERYTHING You Do!”

    He may be one of the biggest movie stars in the world, but Denzel Washington knows where to place his focus. Denzel was the commencement speaker at a graduation ceremony in Dillard University. His most important message to these graduates? Well…

    “No. 1: Put. God. First!” said Denzel. “Put God first in everything you do. Everything I have is by the grace of God. Understand that. It’s a gift.”

    Washington went on to speak about his humble beginnings and how he was raised by a mom who taught him about grace and mercy. He talked about “failing big”, goals, and not worrying about what you have, it’s about “what you DO with what you have.”

    We LOVE this so much and hope it brings a little encouragement to you today.

    We leave you with this….

    “Don’t just aspire to make a living, aspire to make a difference.” – Denzel Washington

    We encourage you to watch the FULL 11 minute commencement speech here!
