My Dear Child,
Have you recently seen any butterflies? Its wings are transparent, yet we can still see its striking colours because the wings are protected by very fine scales that reflect the light in different ways. Do you know they taste their food with their paws? It’s very different from us, isn’t it? The butterfly becomes a very beautiful insect after going through a process called metamorphosis, that is, a total transformation. At first, it’s just an egg, then a larva, a pupa, and it becomes a beautiful adult butterfly.
God wants you and me to be completely transformed so that we may have a beautiful appearance within and outside. “Whoever lives in Christ is a new creature; the old has passed away, the new has come.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
