The Prepared Christian II

I believe that the prudent, wise Christian learns the basics about survival, camping, firearms, gardening, and prepares himself or herself for disaster, economic or otherwise.
One needn’t go to extremes to simply study the basics and store enough extra food for at least a minimum of thirty days. These days, it’s foolish not to be prepared and make certain that you and your family can sustain themselves in the event of an emergency like a power outage, a natural disaster, or worse.
I’ve put together some scriputral references that show us that biblically, God considers it wise for Christians to prepare for the unexpected.
I’ve also included some interesting sites and links that will help even the most clueless get prepared a little at a time, at your own rate, with what you can afford to stock up on and buy as you’re able.
Enjoy!
Genesis 6:21
 
“And remember, take enough food for your family and for all the animals”.
God suggested to Noah that he prepare ahead of time. 
 
Proverbs 6:6 – 6:11
 
6:6 Take a lesson from the ants, you lazybones. Learn from their ways and be wise! 6:7 Even though they have no prince, governor, or ruler to make them work, 6:8 they labor hard all summer, gathering food for the winter. 6:9 But you, lazybones, how long will you sleep? When will you wake up? I want you to learn this lesson: 6:10 A little extra sleep, a little more slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest 6:11 and poverty will pounce on you like a bandit; scarcity will attack you like an armed robber.
 
Timothy 5:8
 
“But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.”
 
 
Proverbs 27:12
 
“A prudent person foresees the danger ahead and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.”

  1. this is a good blog , lining up with the bible, I as a Christian should be doing this myself and thank you for this because it has opened my eyes to what i should be doing for my family.

  2. This, to me, is a perfect example of an idea that can stand on its own merits without God being involved. Why do you need the Bible to tell you that it’s good to be prepared in case of emergencies? It’s common sense.

  3. Well, there is debate regarding this issue because of God telling us within the bible that we should worry for nothing, and so some would argue that there is contradiction here within His word about this. And yes, I agree, it is good common sense to prepare and I think we are to use our God-given common sense in this world in all situations. God gave us a good mind for a reason.

  4. So glad it was helpful to you, Rambo. Thanks for stopping by and sharing here… sorry I was late in responding.

  5. no problems I am sorry for not writing another blog I am studying the full armor of God and will publish this sometime this week. I am also trying to get into free lance writing and also getting involved with the persecuted Christian amongst other things.
