As the girls admired all the butterflies, their teacher walked up. “Have you seen the chrysalis display?” he asked. “A butterfly is coming out.” Kristen and Leah went to watch the insect struggle to get free. Eventually it broke loose, then opened its wings. “Isn’t that amazing?” Leah said. “First it was a caterpillar, and now it’s starting a whole new life as a butterfly!” A caterpillar seems to die. That’s because it goes into its chrysalis and is never seen again. But actually it doesn’t die. Instead God changes it into a butterfly. For believers, what looks like death is the start of a great new life.
