The Butterfly

by - 10:07:00 am

One day a man found a cocoon. He noticed a small opening and decided to watch the butterfly emerge. He sat and watched for several hours as it struggled to force its body through the little opening.

It seemed to stop making any progress and appeared as if it got the point, it could not progress further. Then the man decided to help.

He took a pair of scissors and enlarged the opening. The butterfly emerged easily.

But something strange was happening. The butterfly had a swollen body and shriveled wings. The man continue to observe and expected at any moment, the wings would enlarge, expand and support the body, which would contract in time. Neither happened. In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and deformed legs. It was never going to fly.

The man in his kindness did not realize that the restricting cocoon and the strugle the butterfly had to go through the small opening are God’s way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it got free from the cocoon.

P/S : If God allowed us to go through life without any obstacles, we would not be as strong as He intended us to be. Not only that, we could never fly. No one goes through life without struggles or obstacles.
