I just had the most meaningful conversation of my life with my 15 year old daughter. She is about to go back to boarding school in DC. I've been so worried that somehow when the shtf, we will be separated.
I just gave her the 45 minute version of this thread. I believe the hurricane that is coming is the beginning. It will wreak mayhem up and down the entire coast. People in norfolk and Virginia beach are scrambling lime maniacs to get hurricane supplies together.
What I told her is"you can never have enough supplies especially if you are Bill gates. I asked what would happen if she had enough food and water for our family for a year (assuming Katrina devastation) and a homeless family showed up begging and you knew that if you gave them some, within hours a hundred other families would show up and demand the rest.
Her answer blew me away. She said I would lend them our fishing rods so they could catch fish and tell them they would have to lend them to the next family. Awesome.
My point was that Jesus said there was no need to store up treasure because as God loves the sparrow and provides for him without needing to pile up hurricane supplies or survivalist MREs, he loves us much much more. The more supplies we hoard means the more tests we will have to endure as we must GIVE IT AWAY just like the rich man who asked Jesus how he could get to heaven.
Our faith shall provide all we need. Some of us will die but others, like my tattooed brother will have lightning bolts shooting from his fingertips.
