Living #OKready

Matthew 24:44  "For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will."

For the Christian, this verse speaks to preparedness, at a different level.  Yet, many also apply this verse to preparing for disaster.

Did you notice how many faith based groups are part of the Oklahoma Voluntary Agencies Active in Disasters?  The Baptists bring their chainsaws; the Salvation Army brings their canteens.  The Disciples, Methodists, Scientologists, and Seventh Day Adventists all bring something.

Do you know when the next disaster might strike?  Do you have 72-hours supplies ready, just in case?

While some Christians discount the need to prepare, "I will trust God", the Son of God said "Be Ready".

What have you done this week to prepare?  http://www.ready.gov will help.  After all, this is National Preparedness Month.
