1 Corinthians 16:13 ESV – Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.
Whether you are a Christian, Jew, agnostic, athiest, Hindu, and a myriad of other faiths or non-faiths, there is more to preparing than just getting your gear ready and picking out a bug-out location.
For many of us, it’s not an issue of bugging in or out or how many guns we collect. It’s an issue of being prepared, in mind and body, for the journey ahead, and living our lives in accordance to our particular practice of faith, first and foremost. Our family sees a big importance on our Spiritual Preparedness, more so than our physical. And it seeps into everything we do, say and every fiber of our being. Being Spiritually ready, by a saving Grace from our Lord Jesus Christ, is our most important prep item.
And to help us out in the ‘field’, we keep a copy of a Bible in each of our bug out bags and car emergency totes and on our e-readers. The same could be said of any faith – it would be important, if the situation arises, for you to have a copy of your sacred text with you – for comfort, for prayer, for a help to someone else. Being able to go to scripture in a time of crisis, to meditate on His Word, to offer the same comfort to another individual in need of it, is truly an important preparedness item for us. Think about it for yourself.
