I’ve been at my job for a while now, and I know that I make a valuable contribution to my company, but I don’t know how to go about asking for a raise. Employers seem to be able to say vague things about the economy being sluggish and rush past any conversation that involves compensation. What does the Bible have to say about how to have an uncomfortable conversation about compensation? Is it more “Christian” to take a lower salary and give up worldly riches?
