Actor Chris Pratt just took home the ‘Generation Award’ at the MTV Movie and TV Awards this weekend, but it’s his advice, not the accolade, that has the Internet buzzing.
Interspersed with inspiration, Godly wisdom, and a little humor, the actor delivered what he called “9 Rules from Chris Pratt, Generation Award Winner.”
Amidst some hysterical advice on how to appropriately poop at parties, Pratt also made sure to point to God in several of his life-lesson rules (particularly, numbers 6, 8, and 9), and it would be wise for the next generation to take heed.
“God is real. God loves you. God wants the best for you. Believe that. I do,” charged Pratt, before also encouraging viewers to pray and rest their imperfections in God’s perfect grace:
“Nobody is perfect. People are gonna tell you you’re perfect just the way you are. You’re not. You are imperfect. You always will be, but there is a powerful force that designed you that way, and if you’re willing to accept that, you will have grace. And grace is a gift, and like the freedom we enjoy in this country, that grace was paid for with somebody else’s blood. Do not forget it. Don’t take it for granted. God bless you.”
