Like family life, economic life is one of the chief areas where we live out our faith, love our neighbor, confront temptation, fulfill God’s creative design and achieve our holiness. Our economic activity in factory, field, office or shop feeds our families—or feeds our anxieties. It exercises our talents—or wastes them. It raises our hopes—or crushes them. It brings us into cooperation with others—or sets us at odds.
As a key component of our economic lives, our investments either further endear us to or estrange us from our awesome loving God.
