Summary

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.

Not what it says on the tin

There isn't any example of anyone giving it all away and no words about getting it all back. There are some interesting bits but overall it is disappointing.The title is misleading. It does little to recommend its spiritual principals and is frankly counterproductive in that department.

An absolute must read for any Christian entrepreneur!

Thank you so much David Green — what a wonderful listen on audible and such a heart warming and Christ centred book on how to conduct ourselves, our life, our business and business profits, our finances, our family and our legacy remembering that all belongs ultimately to God and we are here oh but for a short time as David Green suggests just to be as “wise stewards” for God’s glory and to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Storing up only treasures in heaven. There is a wonderful analogy at the end with my children’s favourite card game ‘Uno’, I will never play this game again with my girls without thinking humbly and carefully about David Green’s heartfelt message. I urge every believer to read this book and think carefully how we can apply the same principles. I certainly intend to try. Thank you David Green!

Quick listen on the topic of generosity

The narrator conveyed the very conservative tone of the author. This book is about how to manage wealth and run a family business as a devout Christian.

Great Listen

We need more generosity in this world. I definitely feel better when I am giving it all away. I would recommend this book.

Life Changing

Thank you for taking the time to share this wisdom with us. I have been struggling with how to responsibly steward and pass on what GOD has entrusted to me. Thank you for bringing clarity.

Amazing!

This book gives a true vision on how to manage your money, and obtain and sustain wealth. Not riches, but true wealth. The difference between the two is also explained in the book. Well written, with a story line that just flows of the pages and captures you attention. I suggest this book to anyone who cares about using their time, energy and financial resources the right way, to glorify God.
