PunaGabe - You sparked some thoughts in my head.
I remembered this:
25 And there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an ass’s head was sold for fourscore pieces of silver, and the fourth part of a cab of dove’s dung for five pieces of silver.
26 And as the king of Israel was passing by upon the wall, there cried a woman unto him, saying, Help, my lord, O king.
27 And he said, If the Lord do not help thee, whence shall I help thee? out of the barnfloor, or out of the winepress?
28 And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This woman said unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my son to morrow.
29 So we boiled my son, and did aeat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son.
30 ¶And it came to pass, when the king heard the words of the woman, that he arent his clothes; and he passed by upon the wall, and the people looked, and, behold, he had sackcloth within upon his flesh.
and also this:
15 And when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, Give us abread: for why should we die in thy presence? for the money faileth.
16 And Joseph said, Give your cattle; and I will give you for your cattle, if money fail.
17 And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for horses, and for the flocks, and for the cattle of the herds, and for the asses: and he fed them with bread for all their cattle for that year.
18 When that year was ended, they came unto him the second year, and said unto him, We will not hide it from my lord, how that our money is spent; my lord also hath our herds of cattle; there is not ought left in the sight of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands:
19 Wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die, that the land be not desolate.
20 And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over them: so the land became Pharaoh’s.
I also wanted to add that teaching/warning our neighbor and doing home teaching is important because the more prepared people around us the better. Think of how much peace a family could have if all of the neighborhood had food.
Also, I can't understand why people don't care to research what caused the depression of 2008? It boggles my mind. They just go along their day trusting their government. Many people were only affected because their home price dropped but many of them hold the same jobs. I think this would deter them from worrying.
What will you guys do if your family, siblings and parents, aren't prepared?
I know that a currency crisis is at the door with one foot in. I am grateful for people like Ron Paul
who predicted the housing bubble precisely and continues to warn us of the impending doom.
