The apostle Paul in Philippians 4 verse 18 - 19, writes that the people  of the church at Philippi were sending him the things that he needed and that he was well supplied. He mentioned that the effort that was expended to provide for Him was pleasing to God.  The passage says it this way:

But I have received everything in full and have an abundance; I am amply supplied, having received from Epaphroditus what you have sent, a fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God. 

And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. 

The passage ends with the confident assertion that his ( Paul's ) God would supply all their needs according to His ( Jesus' ) riches in glory. 

The implication is that undertaking to supply the servants of the Lord with what they need as they do the work of the kingdom of God positions us to be recipients of God's riches in glory.

This provisioning of the Lord's servants gives us the  opportunity to be participants in the work of the kingdom and to share in the harvest.

Bless the Lord our God.
