Born to fly and multiply



One of the most beautiful creations God made and one of my favorite is the butterfly. Butterflies are free.

Have you ever seen a butterfly who looked stressed out, worried, angry, depressed, discouraged, or unhappy? No. Butterflies are happy. 🙂

I researched caterpillars and butterflies today. It was fascinating to read about them.

Caterpillars are one big munching machine from the time they are born until the time they are transformed into the butterfly. They even eat their own skin in the chrysalis!

Butterflies are more graceful and delicate. Their favorite beverage is a flower drink (the nectar).

Butterflies are all about flight and reproduction. Even when resting, butterflies are often preparing for flight by keeping their wing muscles warm enough to move.

Butterflies also have an extremely short life span.

The small blue butterfly can live only a few days. The migrating monarch butterfly can live up to 12 months. Some species of butterflies migrate thousands of miles or hibernate in the winter.

But at the end of their journey or at the beginning of spring, all butterflies’ actions are the same. They mate, the females lay eggs, and then all the adults die.

The eggs hatch into caterpillars, which turn into similarly short-lived butterflies.

Born to freely fly. Born to multiply.

It’s the same with us as Christian believers.

We weren’t made to just munch, munch, munch our way through life – consuming everything the world offers such as material goods, entertainment, social media, food.

We were created for so much more – to fly with God. To fulfill His purpose for our lives. To be fruitful and multiply on earth, to subdue it and rule over everything. (Genesis 1:28)  To leave a Godly legacy through our children.

“But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” – Isaiah 40:31, NLT

We are to be Freed by His Love, Transformed by His Power.
