I’m looking for an Catholic perspective on working and earning a living ?.
What does Bible and the Church (both who God has given us) teach about working and money ?. I’m looking for some verses to help me against laziness in order to find some positive motivation in working again.
I am struggling to find motivation to work!, a quick summary of me is I have graduated with a degree in Construction and have worked in the construction industry for 7 years. However, I have taken some time off to have a break.
I have hit a breakwall and feel like doing absolutely nothing with my self apart from trivial and idle activities, whether it be with friends, family or on my own. I just don’t want anything to do with working for some reason .
Can you anyone help me snap out of it, I’d really like to know what the God and the Church teach about this, I personally believe it leads to laziness or sloth which is a grave sin is that right ?.
It isn’t depression cause I still enjoy doing everything else apart from working and I get the impression of working being pointless for some reason :S what on earth is wrong with me :shrug:, I only started thinking like that after reading Ecclesiastical 1, is everything really really pointless in this life ?
Maybe I have psychologically linked to money as being completely evil thus working = money = evil ?.
Thanks in advance.
