Oscar winning actor Denzel Washington delivered an incredible message to young actors about the power of hard work and the importance of faith.
“I pray that you all put your shoes way under the bed at night so that you gotta get on your knees in the morning to find them,” Washington said. “And while you’re down there thank God for grace and mercy and understanding. We all fall short of the glory, we all got plenty.”
“If you just start thinking of all the things you’ve got to say thank you for, that’s a day. That’s easily a day,” he added.
“True desire in the heart for anything good is God’s proof to you sent beforehand to indicate that it’s yours already. So the desire you have, that itch that you have to be whatever it is you want to be … that itch, that desire for good is God’s proof to you sent already to indicate that it’s yours. You already have it. Claim it.”
Appreciate this for what it is: a rarity in liberal Hollywood.
