48 Butterfly’s Wings 蝴蝶的翅膀

One day a small opening appeared on a cocoon.a man sat and watched for the butterfly for the several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress.It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could and it could go no further.So the man decided to help the butterfly, he took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon. The butterfly then emerged easily.
一天,有个人看见一只茧上裂开了一个小口,他便坐下仔细观察,蝴蝶艰难地将身体从那个小口一点一点地挣扎出井穿来,几个小时过去了……接下来。蝴蝶似乎没有任何进展。看样子它已经竭尽全力,却不能再前进一步……这个人于心不忍,决定帮助一下蝴蝶,他拿来一把剪刀,小心翼冀地将茧剪开。蝴蝶不费吹灰之力钻了出来。

But it had a swollen body and small,shriveled wings.The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that,at any moment,the wings would enlarge and expand.Neither happened! In fact,the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around wiht a swollen body and shriveled wings.It never was able to fly. What the man in his kindness and haste did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the cocoon to get throgh the tiny opening were God's way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.
但是它的身体肿胀,翅膀小且褶皱。他继续观察,期待着某一时刻:蝴蝶的翅膀会完全打开并伸展起来。然而这一切始终没有出现!实际上,这只蝴蝶的残生将会极其可怜地拖着卷缩的身子和瘪塌的翅膀慢慢爬行,它永远不可能飞起来。这个草率的好心人并不知道,茧的牢固束缚和蝴蝶的拼命挣脱对每只蝴蝶来说都很必要。只有通过这一过程将体液从身体挤压到翅膀,它才能在脱茧而出后展翅飞翔。

Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our life. If God allowed us to go through our life without any obstacles,it would cripple us.We would not be as strong as what we could have been.
有时候,生活中的挣扎和奋争正是我们所需要的。倘若生活中没有一丝障碍,我们就会异常脆弱,不会像现在这般强大。
