Ẹbọ (sacrifice) is law of give and return. It is a known as natural respect. And when it is given out, it is given back. So, sacrifice is based on give and take. Remember you cannot give what you don't have. Sacrifice is about giving what you have to someone or something that needs it. So, he/it can give you what he/it has to you in return. That is why you need to know what you need and where exactly to get it.

Also, if things are naturally offered to you, taking it is a natural acceptance which is equivalent transfer of blessing. However, that you have this access doesn't mean you should misuse people's good will.
