Most businesses in America are known simply for what they sell. It’s rare—but refreshing—when we hear of businesses that are as known for their values as well as for what they sell. One of the most well-known corporations with strong values and practices is Hobby Lobby.
The CEO of Hobby Lobby, David Green, has built a “Christian culture” where others lean on God in prayer. He leans on the Bible to guide business decisions. But this is not just a face he puts on for the public. He sees management as the servants of the employees, and he seeks to live that out with his employees.
• Employees are paid well above the minimum wage.
• Stores close early enough to allow parents to tuck their kids into be
• Employees have Sundays off.
Our lives must match what we say in public. As we tell others about Jesus, it’s equally important that they see Jesus in us.
