Proverbs 16:18 King James Version (KJV) 18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
In my humble opinion it's important for us to teach and learn, but when folks get self righteous, and over confident it is my humble opinion you're asking for trouble. It's all too easy to become over confident in THINGS, the groovy gear know what I mean? I get asked what I think about terms like survivalist, prepper etc... putting labels on yourself (or others) is a very slippery slope because at the end of the day we are more than a label We are flesh, blood, and spirit. We have responsibilities to our families, especially our children. It doesn't matter if there is a storm, one of us gets sick or laid off or whatever, our children will still look to us to feed them, love them, and provide for them. Children will expect us to keep them dry, warm and safe.... The next time someone asks you what you are, stop and consider your response carefully. Is the label you seek really that important? I'm many things including a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, mentor. I'm a woman God put on this Earth and I'm doing the best I can with the skills and abilities I have. I also am, a prepper's wife.
