Christ The Perfect Substitute: Life For Life, Riches For Poverty.
2 Corinthians 8:9

To give is to gain. This is a mystery that eludes us all. Like all things mysterious not everything has a meaningful explanation. Some stuff will have to be by faith and that is our provisional advantage. God gives us everything we have and spiritually he will reward all acts of service through love. God gives up anything he wants us to have and we must give to others what we really want to possess in equal measure. Those who give are always giving and are blessed to keep giving.
