Offerings for the Tabernacle

1 The Lord said to Moses,

2 “Tell the Israelites to take for me an offering; from all whose hearts prompt them to give you shall receive the offering for me.

3 This is the offering that you shall receive from them: gold, silver, and bronze,

4 blue, purple, and crimson yarns and fine linen, goats’ hair,

5 tanned rams’ skins, fine leather, acacia wood,

6 oil for the lamps, spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense,

7 onyx stones and gems to be set in the ephod and for the breastpiece.

8 And they shall make me a sanctuary so that I may dwell among them.


1 Corinthians 3:16-17 – New Revised Standard Version

16 Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?

17 If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.

Each of us are the “Temple” of the Living God. His Spirit dwells richly within us and through that power we are able to be kind to one another.
