David Green believes that generosity and building a legacy based on giving can lead to getting back what you really want: a family that stays together, prays together, and shares life joyfully.

Green tells the story of caring for the small things and starting Hobby Lobby in their garage. He shares the difference between the worlds of “having and hoarding” and a world of “giving and generosity,” the principle of working for God and not for men, and that now is not too soon to consider what you want your legacy to be.

As proof of how living by those principles can change your life, Green shares that when Hobby Lobby came close to bankruptcy in 1986 and when the Supreme Court challenged the Hobby Lobby’s right to life beliefs in 2014, the company emerged with its integrity intact.

Green sees the life of giving as a life of adventure. But it’s a life that pays the best rewards personally, offers a powerful legacy to your family, and changes those you touch.

One favorite story in the Bible is Jesus calling his first disciples along the Sea of Galilee. Unfortunately, when Jesus called James, John, Peter, and Andrew to a life of ministry, he called them away from their business partner Zebedee. Zebedee, a first-century fisherman, devoted Jew and entrepreneur, watched his partners choose to walk away from their business obligations and follow Jesus to become fishers of men.

As Christians, we are taught to turn to the Bible when we are in need of guidance. When we are lost, confused, seeking growth or opportunity, Gods Word is our source of strength and understanding. And even though we may believe and practice Jesuss teachings we have unfortunately learned to separate our Christian values from our workplace. We turn to self-help books on management, workshops about accountability,or seminars on increasing our business traffic. We seek guidance from those successful in our industry or other experts in the secular world.As company leaders, we all too often forget that the most valuable source of information we have is from the Creator himself, and is found in His Word which is designed to guide us through all of lifes journeys. This includes even our businesses.

This book is looking at our 21st-century business world through Zebedees eyes. It demonstrates that the biblical knowledge from the first-century is applicable to our business world today. Zebedee will show us how we can better understand how God wants us to run our businesses, even in the face of struggles, despair and confusion. He shows us how to establish sound business practices based on His Word, and how to lead our businesses in the way God has called us. The Bible is really the only book we need.
