We are back this week with a topic that many people steer clear of: Money.
Before you tune me out, this is not a post about how to make money, save money, invest money, or even an article about that asks you to give your money away.

In St. Augustine’s classic work Confessions, he explains the principle of “Disordered Loves”, and gives us a reminder to love the right things in the right order.
