2 Peter 2:17
I heard of a well that was said to be very good, except that it had two faults; it would freeze up in the winter, and it would dry up in the summer. A most extra­ordinary well, but I am afraid there are many wells like it! There are many people who are good at certain times; as someone has expressed it, they seem to be good “in spots.” What we want is to be red hot all the time. People talk about striking while the iron is hot. Cromwell said that he would rather strike the iron and make it hot.
