On his inevitable journey to become our nation’s leading youth pastor, Chris Pratt delivered a rousing, sermon-esque speech last night at the MTV Movie & TV Awards. Pratt was the recipient of the night’s Generation Award, and as part of his speech he gave nine important life tips for young people to remember. Some highlights:
#1: Breathe. “If you don’t, you’ll suffocate,” Pratt said. Practical.
#2: “You have a soul. Be careful with it.” Wow, wait a minute…are we—are we going sentimental already?
#3: “Don’t be a turd.” Oh, guess not. Wait, hold on, he’s not done: “If you’re strong, be a protector. If you’re smart, be a humble influencer. Strength and intelligence can be weapons, and do not wield them against the weak. That makes you a bully. Be bigger than that.”
#6: “God is real. God loves you. God wants the best for you. Believe that. I do.”
#7: [This one was a whole thing about how to poop at parties. We won’t type it out. But it was a good tip, we admit.]
#8: “Learn to pray. It’s easy. It’s so good for your soul.”
#9: “Nobody’s perfect. You are imperfect. You always will be, but there’s 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. That grace was paid for with somebody else’s blood. Don’t forget it. Don’t take it for granted.”
