I Wonder...

(Butterfly picture from Freeze.com)

Does it hurt the butterfly to go through metamorphosis?
Is it uncomfortable?
Does the caterpillar look forward with anticipation to the
change that it faces, or
is the end just worth the
pain of the change?
Does he crawl inside the warm chrysalis and
say, "Okay Lord, hurry. I need to change now."
"I want to change now."

Does the caterpillar have to learn to be a butterfly, or
Does God give this creature the innate understanding
of how to be a butterfly?
And do butterfly things like flying, sipping nectar, and playing tag on the breeze with
his butterfly mates.
Are these all the things that he is learning inside his little tomb?

Whatever the case, he emerges a new creature.
The old is gone, the new has come.

I wonder...
