The great blessings of food storage and emergency preparedness....
Many of them had food storage and emergency supplies because they had followed the council and warnings of our General Authorities and local church leaders. They were able to help their Ward member families and neighbors. Supplies came pouring in. Great blessings and spiritual experiences came from their preparedness!
Other blessings of being prepared are ...
Knowing your family is not only temporally prepared, but also spiritually prepared
Knowing you will be able to help your neighbors and friends
Knowing you followed the council and warnings of our church General Authorities and local church leaders
Many may say their food storage and emergency supplies are for their family. If they help others, others will come and soon they will not have what they will need for their own family. I am not saying give it all away, be wise. The Lord will truly bless you if you give to others. You will have sufficient for your needs.
I read a quote given by spokesman Bill O'Reilly, "Helping others...isn't just the right thing to do. It is the patriotic thing to do." It is the Lord's way too. We are disciples of Jesus Christ. As disciples we promise to help others in need.
In Luke 6:46 we read, "Why call ye me Lord, Lord and do not the things I say?"
We need to be people of action, we need to be prepared by having on hand food, water and emergency supplies so we can help our family and others when the time comes.
