T-257 : Loafy Crust

In church today one of the speakers made the point that,

"A person cannot give a crust to the Lord without receiving a loaf in return."

That thought had an effect on me so I wrote it down.  I did a little Internet research tonight to learn that it came from this larger quote:
"President Marion G. Romney said of welfare work, “You cannot give yourself poor in this work.” And then he quoted his mission president, Melvin J. Ballard, this way: “A person cannot give a crust to the Lord without receiving a loaf in return.” 
Marion G. Romney, “Welfare Services: The Savior’s Program,” Ensign, Nov. 1980, 93."
 It sounds like the ultimate win-win situation to me.  Give to get.  What do you think?
