A Lesson From a Butterfly

A Lesson From a Butterfly
A man found a cocoon of a butterfly in his garden. One day, he noticed a small opening appeared on the cocoon. He sat and curiously watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole.

Until it suddenly stopped making any progress, and looked like it was stuck.

So the man naively decided to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon.

The butterfly then emerged easily, although it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings.
The man didn’t think anything of it and sat there waiting for the wings to enlarge to support the butterfly. But that didn’t happen. The butterfly spent the rest of its life unable to fly, crawling around with tiny wings and a swollen body.
Despite the kind heart of the man, he didn’t understand that the restricting cocoon and the struggle needed by the butterfly to get itself through the small opening were God’s way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings to prepare itself for flying once it was out of the cocoon.
Moral Lesson
Our struggles in life develop our strengths. Without struggles, we would never grow and learn from our experiences and failures.
