Have You Ever Seen A Butterfly?


This is the story of Beckett, a little green caterpillar who wants to see a butterfly, but he doubts they are real since he has never seen one. His friend, a little brown worm, tells him that just because you haven’t seen a butterfly doesn’t mean that they are not real. He explains that Jesus is real even if you can’t see Him. He then teaches the caterpillar how to see God with the eyes of your heart (Eph. 1:18), your imagination, which is exactly what the caterpillar does! And that encounter changes him from a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly. The story is based on the truth that God loves everyone – even those who make mistakes and feel small and unimportant. Have You Ever Seen a Butterfly is an amazing tool for teaching young and old how to encounter God on a daily basis while illustrating that Jesus changes caterpillars into butterflies.
