The majority of Hollywood movie stars and other celebrities love to brag about their eminent status in the society, but then there are those who are completely down to earth and humble. Denzel Washington is one of them. Instead of boasting about his movies, Washington uses his spare time to dwell on the importance of religion.
Here’s what Washinton said in a recent interview:
“I’m in the service business now, I’m fine. I’ve done well. I don’t need any watches and all of that. So I’m here to serve God, here to serve my family.”
“One of your sermons you talked about was the enemy is the inner me. And I’ve kept that.”
“Give thanks for blessings every day. Every day. Embrace gratitude. Encourage others. It is impossible to be grateful and hateful at the same time.”
“I pray that you put your slippers way under your bed at night, so that when you wake in the morning you have to start on your knees to find them. And while you’re down there, say ‘thank you.’”
“There’s never been a time where God didn’t direct, protect, and correct me. There may have been times where I was less than faithful to him, but he had faith in me.”
AMEN! It’s sad that people like Washington are so rare in Hollywood.
Too bad those like Washington are an endangered breed in the liberal hotspot in Hollywood. Now, I know that is too much to expect all celebrities become devoted Christians, but it is really not much to ask that more respect and appreciation is shown from their side.
We all know Washington’s success as an actor in Hollywood, and thus, the world, and other celebrities might want to look up to him both on his professionalism as an actor and his integrity as a person.
