Luke 6:27-31

Some robbers once came to a hermitage and said, "We've come to take everything out of your cell."

The hermit said, "Take whatever you see, my sons." So they took what they found in the cell, and went away. But they missed a little bag that was hidden in the cell. The hermit picked it up and ran after them, shouting, "My sons, you missed this, take it."

They were amazed at his patience and restored everything, and did penance to him. They said to each other, "Truly this is a man of God."
