Today, another celebrity is praising the name of the Lord for everyone to hear. Denzel Washington is an Academy Award-winning actor and he recently gave the commencement speech at Dillard University. He was speaking to the college graduates and wanted to give them some advice now that they would be entering the real world. Denzel's number one piece of advice was to put God first. He said, ‘Put God first in everything that you do.
Everything that you think you see in me, everything that I've accomplished, everything that you think I have and I have a few things, everything that I have is by the grace of God' These are such powerful words and you can even hear cheers in the crowd as he speaks to the graduates.
