Get Hold of Sinners by the Hand If You Mean to Get Hold of Them by the Heart
Mark 8:22-26
And he comes to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man to him, and sought him to touch him.…

Gough, the temperance orator, tells of the thrill of Joe Stratton's hand laid lovingly upon his shoulder, just at the time when he was reeling on the brink of hell; and of another gentleman of high respectability, who came to his shop when he was desperately struggling to disengage himself from the coils of the serpent, and almost ready to sink down in despair; and how he took him by the hand, expressed his faith in him, and bade him play the man. Gough said, "I will:" and he did — as everybody knows.
