Be ready for an emergency so you and your family not only don't become victims, but you are also able to help others in need.
We are not to depend on others or governmental agencies to "save" us though they may offer assistance. We need to hear from our Lord and work within our community to prepare for emergencies.
We can be self sufficient and take charge of our own affairs since we live in a free country. You need to know, practice and defend the Bill of Rights and the United States Constitution as a patriotic citizen to protect your right to be independent to act.
