I was recently reflecting on my beloved grandfather,who was a life long farmer of S.W.Ga. He had a barn that sometimes house livestock, but a corn crib and loft kept the corn and hay for the winter. It also kept the best seed to be re-planted for the next season. He kept out of sight, rubber boots, and toilet tissue; he was prepared. Over the past few years most have concluded that mess in the world is happening more frequently, and becoming more intense [labor pains] and are preparing for the speed bumps of life. We must position ourselves to assist our neighbors-because it is the righteous thing to do. The Lord says As long as the earth remains, there would be seed, time, and harvest. Christ Jesus in Matt.7:25, talks of those that were prepared and miss-prepared. The parable of the Ten Bridesmaids were Watchmen; 5 vigilant, and 5 that lost focus. It saddens me that those that are preparing for Life, are labeled as evil and some countries as terrorist. The Word teaches us [Matt.5:45] that the rain falls on the Just, and UN-just, but it is coming; the difference = Preparedness.
