Words of Comfort: How to Kill the Butterflies

After thinking about how common it is for us to get “the butterflies” before we open air preach or witness to someone, I Googled the words “How to kill butterflies.” I learned that butterflies can be frozen to death (from an empathetic lady who found an injured butterfly, and euthanized it), or squeezed to death (a loving collector who loved dead butterflies), or fed to a toad (this man didn’t like butterflies).

When it comes to killing the butterflies before preaching, there is a really hungry “toad.” His name is “Compassion” and he will eat up the butterflies every time. See Jude 22.
