Section Three: Give Money to Get Money, page 107

“Stop judging others, and you will not be judged. Stop criticizing others, or it will all come back on you. If you forgive others, you will be forgiven. If you give, you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, and running over. Whatever measure you use in giving - large or small - it will be used to measure what is given back to you.” (Luke 6:37-38)

“Do for others as you would like them to do for you.” (Luke 6:31)

Some of us may not tithe because we feel to poor.

“I assure you, this poor widow has given more than all the rest of them. For they have given a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she has.” (Luke 21:3-4)

Give from Love. Not like the scribes and pharisees do.
“Give to Caesar what belongs to him. But everything that belongs to God must be given to God.” (Matt 22:21)

The Lord wants you to be happy. Wealth is a means to happiness because it means you can help a lot of people, and it means you can pursue your ruling love and use.

The Mark Shimoff quote is very similar to:
“First seek God’s Kingdom, and it’s justice, and you will gain all.” (Matt 6:33)
It doesn’t say, seek ye first the kingdom of God, and you will remain poor and miserable.
The outside world is the world of effects, it’s just the result of thoughts.
The spiritual world is the real world.
