Dr. J. Wilbur Chapman tells about the time he was conducting a prayer meeting when a man gave this testimony: The man said, "I got off at the Pennsylvania depot as a homeless person and for a year I begged on the streets for a living. One day I touched a man on the shoulder and said, 'Mister, please give me a dime.'

As soon as I saw his face, I recognized my father. 'Father, don't you know me?' I asked. Throwing his arms around me, he cried, 'I have found you; all I have is yours.'

Think of it, that I, a homeless person, stood begging my own father for ten cents, when for eighteen years he had been looking for me to give me all he was worth!"
