Our Temple is financially sustained by tithes and love offerings.  We all know what a tithe is - 10% of our income, given to the glory of God, paid to the source(s) of our spiritual sustenance.  What is a love offering?  It is what the still small voice in the heart tells us to offer.  It is Spirit within, the Christ Consciousness, telling us what to give.  


Why?  So the Temple will prosper?  It will, yet that is not the main reason. Is it because God needs it?  No - God is the source of all.

It is for us.  For our growth, joy and prosperity.  If we stay hunkered down, fearful of giving, we unwittingly refuse our good. God's limitless supply needs to flow freely, so we need to both give and receive freely to live bountifully.  Life is a dance of giving and receiving, and we can't really sit it out without withering.

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over...For with the same measure ye mete withal it shall be measured unto you again.

Luke 6:30

As we give to the glory of God, we find we are blessed.  We can't outgive God.  As we give with a full heart, we open to God and receive the wonderful good God has been patiently holding for us,


And if you are a tither, you already know nothing else imparts such rock-solid security.

But this I say, he which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly;

and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.

Every man according as he purposeth in heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity:

for God loveth a cheerful giver.  - II  Corinthians 9:6,7
