“I hear you lost everything”

After the great Chicago fire of 1871, evangelist Dwight L. Moody went back to survey the ruins of his house. A friend came by and said to Moody, “I hear you lost everything.”
“Well,” said Moody, “you understood wrong. I have a good deal more left than I lost.”
“What do you mean?” the inquisitive friend asked. “I didn’t know you were that rich.”
Moody then opened his Bible and read to him Revelation 21:7—“He that overcometh shall inherit all things, and I will be his God.”
