有一個人無意中找到一個蝴蝶蛹


幾天後﹐他留意到蛹出現了一個小孔﹐他就停下來觀察它。過了幾個小時﹐他見到裡面的蝴蝶用它細小的身體掙扎從小孔出來。


看來很久也沒有一些進度﹐小蝴蝶好像盡了最大努力也沒有辦法出來。這個人於是決定幫它一把﹐找來一雙剪刀將蛹的儘頭剪開。


蝴蝶這樣就很容易出來。


但是這蝴蝶的形態有一點特別﹐它的身體肥腫﹐翅膀又細又弱。這人繼續觀察蝴蝶因為他相信翅膀會漸漸變大而它的身體會越來越小。


這沒有發生。小蝴蝶餘生只是托著肥腫的身體和細弱的翅膀﹐在地上爬著走。


它永遠也不會飛行。


這個善良的人不了解蝴蝶必需用它細小的身體掙扎從小孔出來﹐它必需經過這個過程﹐蝴蝶才可以將身體裡的體液壓進它的翅膀裡。神在此有一個很奇妙的設計﹐就是蝴蝶從蛹中掙扎出來是為著預備它將來飛行需要的裝備。


生命裡面的掙扎是我們必需有的。如果神允許我們順利地過一生﹐我們也許就此不會變得堅強。


也不會成長。


所有當你碰到有逼迫或苦難﹐記得有人正為你禱告﹐最後你也會明白主在你身上的計劃。願望你有一天決志參加我們的行列﹐與我們一齊飛到天家。


 


A man found a cocoon of a butterfly.


One day a small opening appeared, he sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole.


Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could and it could go no farther. Then the man decided to help the butterfly, so he took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon.


The butterfly then emerged easily.


But it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings. The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that, at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to 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 shriveled wings.


It never was able to fly.


What the man in his kindness and haste did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening were 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 achieved its freedom from the cocoon.


Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our life. If God allowed us to go through our life without any obstacles, it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as what we could have been.


And we could never fly.


In your times of trial and tribulation, remember that we are praying for you, and in the end The Lord has a purpose for all of this. So one day you can fly with us...
TO HEAVEN!
