2. I would have to concede that point

I like the idea of karma in the sense of building a bank of "good will" by doing good deeds but there is, of course, no guarantees of any such repayment. Someone could spend many years helping others, being selfless and then get a diagnosis of terminal cancer or get hit by a bus.

You're right, the important thing is feeling rewarded by knowing you've done something that benefits others and it's an added bonus if you feel appreciated for your efforts.
