"A prudent man foreseeth evil and hides himself, the simple man goes on and suffers". This applies to both our spiritual and physical lives. Could the economy go into a tailspin? Could the government not fulfill their obligations? Where do we go if we lose our jobs, our homes? What is your plan? We must prepare both physically and spiritually. God does provide a way, but we must have faith.
