“Prepared Not Scared” 

Absorbing God’s Word

“The foolish ones said to the wise, “Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.” “No, they replied, there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.” Mathew 25:8-9

Applying God’s Word

The word “Fool” is defined as someone who acts unwisely or imprudently. I sense God is asking me to be the fool in this writing and yet only time will tell who the real fools are.

I prepared for Y2k, and nothing happened. I lost about 35% in my IRA during the 2008 crash, because I didn’t see it coming. I’ve been the fool on both sides and here I am again. 

I do believe we are presently in a recession and that conditions are getting worse by the day. Louise and I are not scared, because we trust God and are thankful that He has given us the insight to prepare for possible food and supply shortages. We are making sure that we have at least 3-9 months of medications, food items that are not perishable, toiletries and some extra cash on hand.

If this downturn lasts longer than expected, folks will realize they don’t have enough oil for their own lamps let alone enough oil for the lamps of others. Therefore, we are encouraging our family, friends, neighbors, and all of you not to be scared but to be prepared. 

Accounting of God’s Word

Is it foolish to prepare or foolish not to? What kind of fool am I?
