Chris Pratt – who just turned 39 – has risen to superstar fame in Hollywood recently with his roles in the Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy movie franchises.

Recently he received the Generation Award from the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

He used the opportunity to share what he called “Nine Rules from Chris Pratt – Generation Award Winner.”

Pratt began his acceptance speech by saying to the audience, “I’m going to speak to you, the next generation, ok? I accept the responsibility as your elder, so listen up.”

His “Rules” were a combination of humorous anecdotes and deep spiritual truths … delivered in a forceful and authoritative – yet engaging – way that brought forth both laughter and cheers from his “student” audience.

CNN, MSNBC and other outlets, on the other hand, reported on Pratt’s “Rules” with sarcasm and disbelief.

Here’s a sampling of the 9 rules:

  1. Breathe. If you don’t, you’ll suffocate.
  2. You have a soul. Be careful with it.
  3. God is real. God loves you. God wants the best for you. Believe that. I do.
  4. Learn to pray. It’s easy … and it’s so good for your soul.
  5. Nobody is perfect. People are going to tell you you’re perfect just the way you are. You’re not! You’re imperfect. You always will be…

He goes on to say that if we’re willing to accept that we will always be imperfect, we’ll have grace…

And then he says, “And grace is a gift. And like the freedom we enjoy in this country, that grace was paid for by somebody else’s blood. Do not forget it. Don’t take it for granted.”

Chris Pratt suffered a high-profile separation and eventual divorce from Anna Farris – his wife of almost 9 years – in 2017 … shortly after the release of the sci-fi space movie Passengers – in which he costarred with Jennifer Lawrence…

But in spite of his setbacks, he’s a Christian who in the past has been outspoken in public about his faith.

The awards ceremony was no different…
