For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them.
I’ve written a post about this verse before, but it’s so important that I thought we could go over it again. Complacency is the exact opposite of vigilance, which is required of every Christian, every patriot and every prepper. I would guess that anyone reading this post would have to fall into at least one of those categories.
As Christians, we have to be vigilant to watch out for the common traps that steer us away from our faith. In Matthew 13, Jesus warns of the cares of this world which cause the Word of God to not be fruitful in our lives. God warns Cain in the book of Genesis that sin is crouching at his door. Cain was complacent and didn’t take the warning to heart, so, his complacency destroyed him.
The patriot must not allow himself to become complacent. Our freedom is deteriorating at a rapidly increasing rate. In the past few weeks, we’ve seen the ATF attempt to ban 5.56 steel core ammo and the FCC step into assume responsibility over the last remaining venue of free speech. I’m sure the internet will soon be like many college campuses which now have free-speech zones as the First Amendment is no longer permissible outside of a regulated area.
Being a prepper in South Florida, I see vigilance in preparedness in years directly after a major hurricane. As each year without a major storm passes that vigilance slips and slips into a comfortable complacency until folks are once again, down to a day or two of supplies in their pantry. That’s usually when the big ones hit.
It’s a good idea to take a look in the mirror from time to time to ask yourself if you’re doing every thing you can to stay vigilant or if you might have any area of your Christian walk, patriotism or personal preparedness that is slipping into complacency.
If you are new to prepping or would like to learn more about how to prepare for tomorrow, please read our 7 Step Preparedness Plan. Come back every Sunday for a new Prepper Bible Study! The most important prep of all is knowing GOD. Jesus said “what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world yet loses his own soul?” Prepper translation: “What good will it do you to survive the coming economic collapse, nuclear war or even a zombie apocalypse if you don’t know you will go to heaven when you die.” A recent study found that 10 out of 10 people die! On that day we will meet our Maker. It only makes sense to be prepared for that day. Click here to learn more about knowing GOD.
Have a blessed day and happy prepping!
