In this thought-provoking episode of The Chase hosted by Chris McAlpin, the topic of reconciling faith with our daily lives, especially in finances, is deeply explored. Chris begins by highlighting the dichotomy many faces between their spiritual beliefs and their practical lives, especially in their careers. Drawing inspiration from the Hebrew word "Shalom", which translates to peace but encompasses so much more, Chris delves into the idea of being reconciled with God and experiencing a profound peace that permeates all aspects of life.
Throughout the episode, Chris emphasizes the importance of integrating one's faith into every facet of life, from work to finances to personal relationships. He challenges listeners to reflect on their relationship with money and success, urging them to find a balance that aligns with their spiritual beliefs.

Chris also touches upon faith-based investing, which allows Christians to align their financial decisions with their values. He encourages listeners to explore this avenue, emphasizing its potential for spiritual and financial fulfillment.
