God gradually reveals
His truth, like a flower unfolding. It is not like the night-blooming cereus
that opens only in the darkness and is seen by few. It is not like the century
plant that opens so rarely and is seen so seldom. It is not like the morning
glory that opens at dawn and is shut by noonday. God's revelation gradually
unfolded; but it is now open for all to see. You may read the Bible night or
day. At any time, in any place, you may look upon the beauty of God's opening
of His heart to man.
