And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory,
are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory,
which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
2 Corinthians 3:18 NIV
The Monarch Butterfly begins its life as an egg, not much bigger than a dot, laid on the leaf of a milkweed plant. In two to three days a caterpillar emerges from the egg, born into the environment of the milkweed. Immediately, the caterpillar begins to live according to its nature and the nature of the caterpillar is to eat; specifically, it consumes its environment. As far as the caterpillar is concerned, the milkweed is its world, made just for him. It provides everything he needs. And boy does he eat it up!
