Chris Pratt – Mr. Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic Park franchise – just blew me away with this excerpt from his MTV Award Ceremony speech. The entire list has humorous parts too and a part is transcribed below (with editorial bolding) but click this video to hear his inspirational message to a demographic who probably does not hear this often if EVER! And who desperately needs it the most!
Be sure your kids watch this GOOD example of a relatable celebrity from children-popular movies, showing his faith in God, grace, and a good sense of humor.
You have a soul. Be careful with it.
Don’t be a turd.
When giving a dog medicine, put the medicine in a little piece of hamburger.
It doesn’t matter what it is, earn it.
God is real. God loves you. God wants the best for you, believe that. I do.
If you have to poop at a party, pee first and flush quick.
Learn to pray. It’s easy and it’s so good for your soul.
Nobody is perfect. You are imperfect. You always will be. You were made that way. There is a powerful force that designed you that way. And if you accept that you will have grace. Grace is a gift. And like the freedom we enjoy in this country that gift was paid for by somebody else’s blood. Do not forget it.
