Friends:

Cause & Effect: Action & Reaction = Giving is Getting! 

Giving now - in this life - is the Cause of Future Rebirth Wealth!
No giving = no wealth, much giving = much future wealth!

Giving Food, one gives and later gets Strength!
Giving Clothes, one gives and later gets Beauty!
Giving Medicine, one gives and later gets Health!
Giving Shelter, one gives and later gets Protection!
Giving Transport, one gives and later gets Swift Ease!
Giving Lamps, one gives and later gets Light and Sight!
Giving Learning, one gives and later gets Intelligence!
Giving True Dhamma, one gives & later gets Deathlessness!
Thus this gift of the True Dhamma exceeds all other gifts...

"Sabbadānam dhammadānam jināti" Dhammapada verse 354
