We cannot run out of what God gives us

It was almost Christmas. Being a student about to graduate and embark on a musical career, I had only a very limited amount of spending money—and that had been supplied by my parents. I dearly wanted to give them Christmas presents, but it hardly seemed right to ask them for money in order for me to buy their own presents. ...

As a new and enthusiastic student of Christian Science, I was learning to turn to God for every need; so this presented another opportunity to seek a spiritual solution to an everyday kind of problem. Turning to my Father-Mother God in prayer, I listened and waited for an answer. Very quickly, words from Jesus' parable of the prodigal son came to mind: "Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine."
