“If I die without food or without eternal salvation, I want to die without food.”


David Green, the billionaire founder of Hobby Lobby, has given an estimated $500 million for charitable purposes, according to a piece about him in Forbes:

The beauty of this is that his focus is on eternal pursuits more than the temporal. He wants to get Scripture to everyone in the world.

Through foundations he supports, he has already distributed nearly 1.4 billion copies of Gospel literature in more than 100 countries, mostly in Africa and Asia. The OneHope Foundation targets children age 4 to 14 with Scripture tailored to them, while Every Home for Christ sends evangelists with Bible booklets door-to-door in some of the poorest countries on Earth. “It’s not like you give them that but don’t give them food; you do both,” Green stresses. He’s also sponsored the YouVersion Bible app for mobile phones and tablets, which has been downloaded more than 50 million times, which members of our families regularly use.


Green’s salient quote: “If I die without food or without eternal salvation, I want to die without food.”
