Be Prepared

This morning when I got up, I turned on the television only to find that an earthquake had hit the country of Chile. Although it was a 8.8 on the Richter scale, it did not do as much damage as the one in Haiti. But, still it was a devastating event for those involved.

I have been watching this all day, waiting to see the damage that might be done to Hawaii with the tsunami. Seems as though they escaped without any damage. But it still may hit other places on the Pacific coast of the US and also Japan. There could yet be major damage from this earthquake and tsunami.

There was no way the people of Chile could have been prepared for this earthquake considering it happened in the middle of the night. It caught them all off guard. But the people of Hawaii knew the tsunami may hit them, so they made sure they had the necessary things to carry them through. And they were warned far enough ahead in order to move to higher ground.

The Bible tells us to be prepared. We never know when our time will come to leave this world. We also do not know the day nor hour of the Lord's return. The Bible tells us that those endure until the end will be saved. We need to hold on to His Word and be watching for His return every day.
