Session 6 Extra: News Story

In this study, students look at 1 Timothy 2 and discuss the biblical mindset toward wealth and material things.

You may share this story of David Green, the CEO of Hobby Lobby, who talks about integrating his faith with his vocation:

David Green insists God is the true owner of his $3 billion arts and crafts chain. Acting as His disciple, Green has become the largest evangelical benefactor in the world—with plans for unprecedented gifts once he’s in heaven.

“I don’t care if you’re in business or out of business, God owns it,” says Green. “How do I separate it? Well, it’s God’s in church and it’s mine here? I have purpose in church, but I don’t have purpose over here? You can’t have a belief system on Sunday and not live it the other six days.”

Have you found other examples of godly attitudes toward wealth and business in the news?
