Hypocrites: Season for

Spurgeon's Illustration Collection

After a refreshing shower which has made all the flowers to smile till the teardrops of joy stand in their eyes, you will see your garden-paths spotted over with slugs and snails. These creatures lay concealed till the genial rain called them forth to make their slimy way towards whatsoever they might devour. After this fashion revivals, of necessity, develop hypocrites, yet who would deplore the shower because of the snails, and who would rail at 'times of refreshing' because mere pretenders are excited to make a base profession of a grace to which they are strangers?
