What I Am Reading

When my years ahead of me are few than those behind me, I want to write this same book.  David Green, the Founder and CEO of Hobby Lobby, writes an authentic, transparent book about leadership and stewardship.  Green is a Christian business owner who shares how he values his employees over profit. He honors his family throughout this work as he has leaned on them for wisdom and guidance through some of the company’s darkest days.

The crust of this book is stewardship. One of the most personal challenging story is Green sharing how he used to say you can never out give God until one God told him he had never tried.  He sets on a journey to try.

He has maintained financial integrity with Hobby Lobby, paid above and beyond all taxes, and on a personal and business level placed God first financially.  He has honored the Lord through tithes and offerings.  Yet, how he explains it is simple, unique, and very practical.

If you desire to own a business, run a business or ministry, or lead your family, Green’s leadership is one to replicate. In these pages, you will find examples on how to lead with integrity to the point where it gets you notice because you are doing it lawful despite everyone else is cutting corners.  Green’s testimony is one for those who work hard to live right and how God always honors the steps of his people.

When to give? I humbly suggest always. We give with joy in our hearts. We give out of our humble circumstances. We give out of our wealth. It doesn’t matter whether we give out of wealth or humble circumstances. God can’t wait for us to step into the joy of generosity. We just need to trust him and take that first step. David Green

But there are times when the test of your conscience is greater than the test of your pocketbook.  David Green
