Money and relationships

“Too many people spend money they buy things they don’t impress people that they don’t like.” — Will Rogers

Yesterday morning we had our first businessmen’s faith and finance breakfast at a local diner. Brenner Lecompte from Morgan Stanley shared his journey from the seminary to finance, and pointed out how we can easily place wealth over our relationships. He also said his own business took off once he started asking God what his mission was. He now sees how God is using him to help others use their talents at the service of relationships. Finally, he highlighted the great assistance having a priest as a spiritual coach has been for him as he juggles work with his duties as a husband and father while completing an MBA.
