Okay! I need to explain my obsession with butterflies.
I'm not an entomologist (one who studies insects.)
I just love spiritual lessons from nature.
Romans 1:20 tells us "For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead;..."
And to me this is one of the best word pictures.
Where do butterflies come from?
We all know that they start out as ugly "worms" or caterpillars. But through the wondrous miracle of metamorphosis, they become beautiful creatures.
I, too, once was an ugly caterpillar (spiritually), but Jesus Christ came into my life and changed me into one of his butterflies. It's not what I am, but what he is in me.
Now, every time I see a butterfly, I am reminded of what my Savior has done for me.
