DeVon Franklin, vice president of production for Columbia Pictures, shares how being bold about his Christian faith while being driven and ambitious has actually helped him to excel. DeVon Franklin tells Oprah about the Bible Sabbath and how it is Saturday and not Sunday.
Oprah says, “All these years I thought the Sabbath was Sunday… You corrected me. You said, ‘No, Sunday is the first day of the week. Sabbath is Friday sundown to Saturday sundown. I stand corrected.” (See 2:26 – 2:41).
Is it possible that the Bible Sabbath could be Saturday in parts of the world and Sunday in other parts of the world?
Listen to DeVon tell about his first job interview in which he asks for Sabbath off from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown because He felt God speaking to him telling him to talk about the Sabbath. (Would you talk about the Sabbath if you had to go for a job interview?)
A quotable quote: “If your faith won’t fit in the door that opens, then I argue do not walk through that door.”
(This interview is about his DeVon Franklin’s autobiography, Produced by Faith.)
