Of Oaks and Cabbages

We should not expect new Christians
To grow to perfect specimens
and reach the greatest height.

It takes a heap of time and prayer!
And -
help of God and brother;
We ought to give a helping hand
and pray for one another.

It takes a hundred years or more
to make a fine oak tree;
One season is all a cabbage needs!
- - which would you rather be?
