False And Real

Professor Robinson once found a plant growing most luxuriantly in a coal-mine. Its form and qualities being quite new to him, he had it removed to his garden and carefully attended. But the plant soon languished and died, but from its roots there sprang up a new, fresh form of life, which he easily distinguished as the common tansy. The pit-life of the tansy was unreal and deceptive, as the lives of all are who are living in the pit of spiritual darkness. Not until we get transplanted into the light of the. Kingdom of God do we become really true to the deeper instincts of our nature. "He took me from the fearful pit."
