The Law of Giving and Receiving

By Ernest Holmes

Everything in Nature moves in circles. What goes out must come back. Unless the seed is sown it cannot bear fruit. There must be a planting time for every harvest. Who gives all receives all. Who refuses to give, limits the possibility of the greater good returning to him.

Love and you will be loved. Extend joy and you will become more joyful. The ancient Talmud says, God will doubly guide the already guided, and Jesus, the greatest of the great, said,

“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 6:38)

We do not give because God needs the gift but because the giving increases, broadens and deepens the life of the giver. Nor shall we give from the standpoint of duty. The Universe refuses to bargain with us. It already has given us everything it has. But it also has provided that the gift of life can be received in its fullness only as it flows through us to the fullness of others.

How wonderful is this exact balance which God and nature keep; how perfect is the law of Good and how glorious the opportunity to join with the Infinite Giver in the giving of the self to the joy of life!


I hereby request that my name be included in the DAILY TREATMENTS for UNEXPECTED INCOME and for the successful demonstrations of INCREASED GOOD that prosper me abundantly in all my ways.

I choose to share the increase that prospers me in the form of a TITHE of 10% (or more), as a gift of appreciation to:

The Science of Mind Spiritual Center Los Angeles

By “Unexpected Income,” I understand that I mean an increase in money received over and above my current regular income.



My Daily Treatment For Prosperity

I, ______________________________, recognize that God is the source of my supply and that money is God in action. I am now open and receptive to Unexpected Income that establishes me in greater abundance, which accommodates all my financial needs, with plenty to save and to tithe. I realize that prosperity includes perfect health, successful creative expression and recognition, harmonious loving relationships and peace of mind. I joyfully accept it all with a heart filled with gratitude. Since it is the Father’s good pleasure to give me the Kingdom, I totally accept this rich inheritance knowing that I am worthy of it, and that I deserve to enjoy wealth. The Law Is Absolute, so I rest secure, knowing that everything is working together rightly for my successful demonstration of Unexpected Income. My words are spoken with authority and absolute trust!

I bless everyone else in the Unexpected Income Program of our Science of Mind Spiritual Center Los Angeles family, and I know that we now prosper together in every way.

And So It Is!
