Is believing in God at odds with the goal of making money?
Had been busy trying to balance my personal, work and family lives. Finally, sat down today to continue writing my blog. Recently, read and article on the Yahoo Finance titled "God and Money?" The article talks about the beliefs among different religions regarding whether making money/profit is at odds with God.

Personally, I believe the belief in God is not at odds with the goal of making money. I believe one should make the best use of one's life while we are on earth, and use the money to make not only our personal lives better but to help other people who may be having problems. I believe that the more you use the money to help others, the more God gives you. In my view, God blesses people, who are good stewards of managing money, with more money so that they can use it to benefit others.

To that end, I am glad there are lot of people and organizations around the world that are doing their best to raise money for people in difficult situations. The two organizations I especially like are the World Vision and the Cancer Cancer Patients Aid Association (CPAA). World Vision lets you sponsor children from different countries and uses the funds to help those kids. CPAA is an Indian organization that uses the funds to pay for the treatment of poor people with cancer.

Among the people I admire the most are Bill and Melinda Gates. I admire how they use their wealth via their foundation to benefit people through out the world. I wasn't surprised when Warren Buffet trusted a huge chunk of his money to go to the Gates foundation after his death. As people, Bill and Melinda Gates are definitely my heroes!

Here's the link to the article from Yahoo Finance:
