This saying comes in different forms in various scriptures. This works as long as the help is valued, and the quote is also time-dependent.
In this modern, money-focused fast paced world, all the yesteryear gods could be misconstrued as naive and unsophisticated, and could be easily exploited by certain sections of the population.
The help, at times, depending on the nature of help, needs to be paid in a form that the other side understands the value of it. My 2 tulips thought.
For example, you loan a book, and if the other person never returns it, would you help that person again?
