Rewards of Alms Giving

Anguttara Nikaya, Fours, vii (57),

The Buddha told Suppavasa of the Koliyans:

“Suppavasa, the Ariyan woman-disciple who gives food receives four things.

 What four? Long life, beauty, happiness and strength. “

The giver will be conditioned to be reborn as a deva or human in the future life with these four things.
