Experience has shown that a butterfly requires the struggle to free itself from its chrysalis. Any human assistance will often lead to an inability to expand its wings. There will also be those who are unable to spread their wings successfully due to malnutrition, disease, injury, parasites, etc.
A healthy butterfly has to overcome all of these things to finally fly away. Only about 2% of the eggs laid become healthy butterflies.
The Apostle Paul spoke often of this internal struggle and the fact that it is abiding in Christ Jesus that can allow us to overcome.
