Christians & Preparedness

There are two extremes when it comes to Christians and Preparedness.  One extreme is “God will take care of me so I don’t need to prepare.”  The other is “God expects you to use your brain and pay attention to the times.”  Both extremes come with Scripture proof.  Is there a balance?  I think so.

As a minister, I listen to podcasts and videos from other ministers to keep myself from being inbred in my own theology. 😉  I recently watched a video by Andy Stanley called Breathing Room.  Basically, the idea is that God doesn’t want us living at the limits of…our relationships, finances, life.  It’s easy to do this in our society.

As I watched the video, I was thinking that this is a great way for Christian’s to think about preparedness.  There is so much we should do, but we will never be fully prepared…so we should get to the point that we “breath” and trust in God.

If you have 46 minutes, I suggest watching the video.
