The wild boar and the fox

There was a wild boar sitting by a tree and was sharpening his laniary.

The fox looked curiously at him and asked:

"You are not been chasing by hunters nor being in danger. Why are you sharpening your laniary?"

"Certainly, it's not dangerous now, so it's OK if you don't sharpen your laniary

However, when danger comes, there will be no enough time to sharpen it.

So if you keep sharpening it now, it will be fine even if the danger comes immediately."

What we can learn from this story is that

It's important to be always well prepared before danger suddenly comes.
