...props to AK47 for the idea for this post...
In the aftermath of a Big Bad Event (I'll call it a BBE - maybe it will catch on
) there will be lots of hurting people. WE will be squared away because WE have stored food. The SHEEPLE will be hungry. If I give MY food to the SHEEPLE - my daughter may starve to DEATH - so I gotta be hard.
Others say, "I will give til it hurts" but haven't thought through that when they feel the pain it could be death pangs for their own family.
Others have prepared "refugee meals" to hand out to the miserable masses that stream past their retreat - "Here, take this and move on". What happens if they DON'T move on? What if they set up camp across the road (or just down the road out of sight) and you become a soup kitchen. What happens when there is no more "soup" and you now have a mass of humanity right across the street? Hungry humanity.
In my travels I have met a few people who believe God laid it on their heart to prepare for others. In every case it was for Christians who never got or never listened to the Preparedness Message (Proverbs 6:6 is a decent place to begin) and were now running from "the Beast government" and needed some respite in the wilderness. They had a LOT of food put aside for others.
Where am I going with this?
I want to know what you think.
What you believe.
What you have seen or done.
What ideas you have.
I suspect there will be a wide variety of opinions on this matter so I ask you Vikings to be respectful of others' views - they have a right to an opinion that is very different from yours
