When we finish working at our job, there’s still more work left to do. Before and/or after paid employment work, there is a home to take care of, meals to make, family members to care for and volunteer efforts. When we forget that all work we do gives us the opportunity to use the gifts and talents God has given us to help meet the needs of our fellow man, we forget that we are called by God to be a worker.
At it’s very core, a Christian approach to work is rooted in man’s relationship with God, creation and our fellow men.

People often manipulate facts so they are scrupulously honest without being totally truthful. When we make split second decisions about being honest, we may follow what our society tells us about only dealing with the facts that can be seen. Or we may hedge our bets and try to figure out if we’ll get caught or if we can get away with being dishonest.
But if we are living from a Scriptural basis, then our decisions should be based on what will please God. The Bible tells us to be totally honest in all ways all of the time. In John 14:6, Jesus says, “I am the truth.” And Proverbs 12:22 says, “Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord.”
Being honesty is one of the ways we live our faith.

The core principles of personal financial success are very simple. Keep track of your money. Spend less than you earn. Have an emergency fund. Find ways to economize. Save and invest on a regular basis.
About 76% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, so even though financial success is simple, it’s not easy. It takes discipline, hard work and commitment. It’s fun to dream about being debt free, but what are you doing today to make that dream come true? If you make progress every day, your dreams will soon become reality.
That day to day effort is not how our world tells us to live. In 1 John 2:15, we hear: “Do not love the world or the things of the world.” Too many times we get caught up in how the world tells us to live instead of following our Catholic faith.
To help you manage finances from a faith perspective, you can access the eBook version of Your Money Counts for free and it will help you focus on what is truly important. For more information, call us at 844-447-6263 or fill out the contact form on the Compass Catholic website.
