Giving

True giving is never primarily material. We may think of giving in terms of the material, as when we are earnestly desiring to contribute definite sums of money to our branch church general fund, our building fund, our lecture fund, or to The Mother Church and its various activities, for the maintenance of these necessitates making use of the definite evidence of supply which takes form in the currency of each country. Money plays its part as a useful means of exchange in the support of our movement and its activities, but the right motive behind our gift of money is not material, but spiritual. Such truly genuine giving is impelled by love; and love is of God.

It is notable that the growth of The Mother Church and its activities, which include the spread of the movement throughout the world, has been forwarded by the spontaneous and grateful giving of its loyal adherents in acknowledgment of benefits received. None of the customary solicitation for money has ever been made. The need has been made known, and it has then been met. This is a tangible way by which we can glorify God and do our share in spreading to all mankind the gospel of Truth and Love.
