THE THREE SPARKS

ONCE UPON A TIME, GOD HAD NOTHING TO DO, AND HE
ENCOUNTERED THREE SPARKS WHO HAD NOTHING TO DO.
HE TALKED TO THEM AND TOLD THEM TO GO OUT AND
PROVE THEIR WORTH.
THE FIRST SPARK FLUNG ITSELF AT A DRY FOREST AND
CREATED A MONSTROUS FIRE. IT DID SO TO PROVE TO GOD
THE GREAT POWER OF GOD'S CREATION.
THE SECOND SPARK SAW AN ENEMY CAMP MOBILIZING FOR AN
ATTACK. THE SPARK SET FIRE TO THE POWDER STORES
AND MUNITIONS FORCING THE ENEMY TO RETURN TO THEIR
HOMELAND.
THE THIRD SPARK NOTICED A MOTHER AND HER SON VERY COLD
ON CHRISTMAS EVE WITH NO FIRE TO KINDLE THEIR DRY
TWIGS. THE SPARK GAVE ITSELF TO SAVE THESE PEOPLE
FROM THE COLD.
GOD BANISHED THE FIRST AND SECOND SPARKS, BUT THE
THIRD SPARK, HE PUT AT THE TOP OF HIS HEAD.
