Denzel Washington: “Put God First”


Here is a powerful video of actor and movie star Denzel Washington speaking about the importance of putting God first in life. “Put God first,” Washington tells a college audience. “Put God first in everything you do. . . . Everything I have is by the grace of God. Understand that, it’s a gift.”

Washington, who is a devout Christian, shares in the video the story of how as a failing college student he received a prophecy, believed to be from the Lord, about his future. Washington tells his audience, “I kept God in my life and he’s kept me humble.” Regarding the importance of being close to the Lord, he says, “stick with him in everything that you do. If you think you want to do what you think I’ve done then do what I’ve done and stick with God.”
