Putting Out Fires

"If possible, on your part, live at peace with everyone."
Romans 12:18
It's dry here. Fire's start easily when things are dry - in nature and in relationships. A fire started yesterday, spreading rapidly. The wind was pushing it toward a small community in the country. Residents were evacuated. Many of them gathered to pray. A firefighter said it was a tree-top fire, dropping flames and embers as it moved. Seconds before the flames reached the homes, the wind changed direction blowing the fire back on itself. The community was spared.
Here are some things to remember. 
1. The dryer things are the greater the risk of fire.  
2. God often moves supernaturally in response to urgent prayer.
3. We are responsible to do our part to put out fires.
4. God limits our responsibility (we are not responsible to fix the world).
