By now you have heard countless times that, “You can’t outgive God.” This is the story of how David Green and Hobby Lobby tried to out give God and failed. Maybe you should try it sometime.
Giving It All Away…and Getting It All Back Again: The Way of Living Generously by David Green and Bill High takes readers through Green’s early years as a child all the way up to where he is now.
One great thing about Giving it All Away is that it fits on almost all of the blogs and YouTube Channels we have. It is a book about business, so it fits on Redneck MBA. It is a book about religion and especially tithing, so it fits all kind of ways on How to Manage Your Monkey. It is a book so, of course, it fits on Book Reviews by Bird. And everything fits on Random Thoughts and Observations so, it fits there.
This book is a wonderful story of how Hobby Lobby took on the “guvment”, as we rednecks say, and won. But it is mostly a story about giving back. It shares how a large Pentecostal Holiness family gave much more than their due and inspired their children to do the same.
Hobby Lobby makes such a great juxtaposition to Walmart it is uncanny. A comparison and contrast between the two companies would make a great case study, thesis, or dissertation.
Walmart is all about the mighty dollar. They squeeze every vendor to get a better deal and leave the vendor with less. Hobby Lobby make sure everyone gets a fair deal.
Walmart runs all over their employees. Walmart employees have to work Thanksgiving or be fired. Hobby Lobby is closed on Sunday. Walmart is open 24/7/364. Hobby Lobby closes at 8 PM so their employees can spend time with their families.
Hobby Lobby is so supportive of a person’s right to life that they took on the U. S. Government, and WON. Walmart sells the “morning after pill” on their sales floor. The Walton family is/was allegedly Christian, but the stores Sam left behind don’t reflect it in any way.
What would the world look like if EVERY company displayed true Christian values like Hobby Lobby?
Giving it All Away would make a great small group Bible study for your church. It would make a great book for your chamber of commerce to distribute to all its members so that members could read it and see that it works to put God in control of your business, large or small.
