A father & son were walking thru the grasslands of an open prairie. In the distance, they noticed a wildfire headed their way which would eventually engulf them in flames Quickly, the father acted in the only way that would save them He took some matches and lit a fire right where they were When a section had been burned, they quickly stepped into it. When the raging fire approached them, the boy became terrified. The father looked into his sons’s eyes and said, “Son, we’ll be alright. The fire can’t get us. We’re standing where the fire has already been.” Sure enough, the raging fire came but they were not engulfed in flames because the grass had already been burned there.
