My answer to Why should I believe in God as I will get fruit definitely depending on my hardwork?
Answer by Vijayendra Mohanty:
What makes you think you will get the fruit of your hard work? Maybe you won’t and all your hard work is in vain. There are many people who don’t get what they deserve and many people who get things they don’t deserve.
The idea of deserving is only something that exists inside the human mind. It has no independent existence. Nobody deserves anything in reality.
Believe in god if it makes you feel better to imagine that there is an agent out there who will make sure you will get what you deserve. Or don’t believe in god and work hard anyway because hard work is its own reward. By working hard, you are maximising the potential of your life and increasing the chances of good things happening to yourself as well as those around you.
The joy of it is in the fact that you are trying even though you may never get anything out of it.
