Wall Street Christians (The emotional conflict of God and Money)
In today’s fast-paced world where a minute lost is a dollar spent it is becoming harder and harder for modern day Christians to separate their beliefs from their everyday actions and activities. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the workplace, where everything is subject to collective scrutiny.
Many practicing Christians in positions of authority or those whose roles require guiding and managing others are constantly realizing that it is much harder to actually “Practice what you Preach.” For those whose everyday activity involves the manipulation and fabrication of capital, this can be an even greater challenge. The term “greed is the route of all-evil” can be a bidirectional emotional conflict. It’s hard to be a Samaritan when all through the year your primary focus is on ensuring you attract the highest bonus.
Karina Cole, a counselor at Emotional Care Associates has hands-on experience with working in the world of business and finance, while also understanding the conflicts that come along with it. With the combination of this experience and the practice of Christian Counseling she can effectively empathize with the emotional conflict of modern day Christians. Most importantly, she can help her clients to resolve such conflicts, improve their working efficiency, and deepen their spiritual connection.
As one busy working professional indicated during a brief interview, "How can I serve the needs of my clients without compromising my beliefs? It’s a real battle" ~Anonymous
Traditional therapy tends to focus on making things work for the individual and sometimes falls short of realizing and addressing the dynamic changes that impact us in the real world. The key is to determine the acceptable levels of balance. Then enable one’s self with the tools that allow for a more effective and connected method of decision-making. This can involve a thorough analysis of not only one’s value and belief system, but also taking a snapshot of how you expect your wider environment to relate to it.
