SPIRITUAL ABUNDANCE, THE LAW OF GIVING & RECEIVING and  TITHING
The Law of
Giving and Receiving

“Give, and it will be given to you;
good measure, pressed down,
shaken together, running over, will be
put into your lap. For the measure
that you give will be the measure you
get back.”   (Luke 6:38)

Giving and receiving are the ways we
participate in establishing balance in
the manifestation of
prosperity. Giving
and receiving cause a flow of
substance in soul and body which
manifest in every area of our lives.
Practicing giving and receiving will
release the flow of abundant good in
our consciousness.

Blessing for
Prosperity

Divine Love, as me,
blesses and multiplies

All that I have,
all that I give,
and all that I Receive.
Making a tax-deductible donation
in any denomination is easy!
According to Charles Fillmore, co-
founder of Unity, “A gift of reservations is
not a gift; it is a bribe. There is no
promise of increase unless we give freely,
let go of the gift entirely, and recognize
the universal scope of the law. Then the
gift has a chance to go out and to come
back multiplied. There is no telling how
far the blessing may travel before it
comes back, but it is beautiful and
encouraging fact that the longer it is in
returning, the more hands it is passing
through and the more hearts it is blessing.
All these hands and hearts add something
to it in substance, and it is increased all
the more when it does return.”

...On Spiritual Abundance

We live in a universe of spiritual
substance, infinite supply, and
endless good.

God is our source and our supply.
Other people, our jobs, etc. are
channels through which we receive.

We are all worthy to partake of the
infinite good that Spirit would give
us.

Prosperity comes to us not in the
form of material things but in the
form of divine ideas.

Abundance is found in a
consciousness of God, not a
preoccupation with material things.

To live the abundant life we must
practice the laws of giving and
receiving.
Tithing

Tithing is a special kind of giving: it is giving
with the thought of God uppermost in our
minds. Pure tithing is giving ten percent of your
income back to the source of your spiritual
good. It could be your church, it could be a
person, it could be any number of things, but
the point is that it is to be given to that which in
your life nourishes you spiritually, that place
that gives you your spiritual food.

Tithing is based on the belief that all our good
comes from God, that God is the source of all
that we have, and that through giving back to
God the first fruits of our labors, we are
planting seeds for future harvest of our bounty.

Tithing is recognition of the presence of God
within as the source of all our good. If one
tithes through any feeling of coercion or fear,
or even habit we miss the point. Assess where
you receive your spiritual nourishment and tithe
to it. Nothing builds consciousness as much
as the process of giving our tenth willingly,
cheerfully, lovingly, joyfully.
In the Old
Testament we read about how the first ten
percent of the harvest was replanted to
nourish the soil and provide a fertile land
from which to grow.

“Bring the full tithe into the storehouse,
so that there may be food in my house,
and thus put me to the test, says the
Lord of hosts; see if I will not open the
windows of heaven for you and pour
down for you an overflowing blessing. I
will rebuke the locust for you, so that it
will not destroy the produce of your soil;
and your vine in the field shall not be
barren, says the Lord of hosts. Then all
the nations will count you happy, for
you will be a land of delight, says the
Lord of hosts.”  (Malachi 3:9-12)

PROSPERITY AND
ABUNDANCE ARE YOURS
BY DIVINE RIGHT.
Tithing is a spiritual discipline that
helps us remember to
put God
first
.

To clear the blocks to the flow of
our good, we must
forgive and let
go
of our resentments.

We must be
open and receptive
to receive this good.

the principles of tithing as
believed by Unity Church.
