The Devas nourished by the sacrifice,
will give you the desired objects.
Indeed, he who enjoys objects given by the Devas
without offering (in return), is verily a thief.
When the "productive potential" cherished through "self dedicated work performed in a spirit of sacrifice", Yagna will provide the worker with the desired-for-objects. This is the law of life.
None should enjoy the benefits of others' actions without themselves contributing their share to the total efforts.
