David Green: The Biblical Billionaire Backing The Evangelical Movement

Fresh off an inspection of Hobby Lobby’s sprawling 5.5 million-square-foot distribution warehouse in Oklahoma City, the company’s CEO, David Green, retreats to his office in the adjacent executive building, where he surrounds himself with a collection of homely elephant figurines. His coffee table is draped with a bird’s-eye-view photograph of his corporate campus, annotated with scribbles in black marker that show the expansion under way.

When I ask him to walk me through the secrets to his company’s growth, which the aerial plans represent, the 70-year-old, with a full head of white hair, blue eyes and a prominent square jaw, doesn’t take any personal credit. Nor does he laud his executives or his 22,000 employees or his customers, who will gobble up more than $3 billion worth of crafts products from him this year. “If you have anything or if I have anything, it’s because it’s been given to us by ...

Well, I think that's wonderful and real truth should never be censored. Did you have a follow up here though? I'm not quite sure what the point was and was expecting it to lead into something.

Being a preacher, I would be very interested in listening to a message or two. Do you upload onto SA?

William S., if you comment is directed at me, at least read the very last sentence that copied from the commentary for the sermon, Instructions to Those Who Are Rich where you can find both the commentary--and the sermon.

I think you missed Randy's point. The Bible never condemns riches, but the love thereof. He is saying If these other people would repent and follow Jesus and use their wealth to the glory of God (as the CEO of Hobby Lobby has) rather than themselves it could have a great impact. Tell me your church doesn't take any offering or need money to function, produce Gospel literature, keep the doors open, etc. Can't you be blessed by the story of David Green of Hobby Lobby and Dan Cathy of Chic-fil-a without finding fault?

Gil Rugh said or, wrote:
The bible has much to say about money. There are dangers associated with wealth. The Bible does not condemn wealth that is properly acquired. The Bible does not require God's people to divest themselves of their wealth. However, the Bible does caution us on how we use are wealth and our attitude towards wealth. The Bible points out that wealth and material possessions present special dangers to those who have them or desire them. Wealth will become an obstacle to many people from knowing Jesus Christ and who will be shut out from the joys of heaven. It is easier for a camel to enter through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. However, things impossible for people are possible with God. A person's life has to be given to Christ. There's no guilt or shame in having wealth, but in conceit....
part of the summary for the sermon,
Instructions to Those Who Are Rich.

I think one should pay particular attention to verse 26 of 1 Corinthians 1:17-29

Good point, John UK.

David Green and his family continue to set a great example that we all should follow. Praise God for generous hearts.

Giving is an incredible double blessing (more blessed to give than to receive) and he is wise to not hoard the riches that God has entrusted to him. It's great to be challenged with how he does his giving while he's living and equally good to know that even after his death many others will be impacted for the kingdom with plans for unprecedented gifts once he's in heaven.

Isn't it great to see #79 of the Forbes 400 provide such a God honoring public testimony? If men and women like Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Larry Ellison, Charles and David Koch, the Walton's, Michael Bloomberg, Jeff Bezos, Sheldon Adelson, Sergey Brin and Larry Page, and the atheist George Soros would repent, turn of their ways and follow the one and only true Saviour; imagine the worldwide impact the testimonies and resources of these and others could do. Maybe they will read David's story and God will use that to soften their hearts.

As I write these comments it is a reminder for me to pray for salvation of men, do the best I can to be a good steward of the resources to which I am entrusted and to be a great Ambassador for Jesus Christ.

I hope they do the same for you.

“I want to know that I have affected people for eternity. I believe I am. I believe once someone knows Christ as their personal savior, I’ve affected eternity. I matter 10 billion years from now.”
