2 Timothy 4:2
After the big Chicago fire I came to New York for money, and I heard there was a rich man in Fall River who was very liberal. So I went to him. He gave me a check for a large amount and then got into his carriage and drove with me to the houses of other rich men in the city, and they all gave me checks. When he left me at the train I grasped his hand and said, “If you ever come to Chicago, call on me, and I will return your favor.”
He said, “Mr. Moody, don’t wait for me. Do it to the first man that comes along.”
I never forget that remark; it had the ring of the true good Samaritan.
