Being prepared sets up for success.
Growing up in the Midwest, my dad taught us to have a bag of either sand and/or cat litter in the trunk to get ready for ice and snow. Also, a blanket and some food!
I would submit and suggest that this applies to our current situation — food, supplies, face mask, and whatever deemed necessary.
Also, spiritual and emotional preparedness forms the foundation of being ready!
Semper Paratus is a Latin phrase, meaning “Always Ready”.
It is used as the official motto of some organizations, such as the United States Coast Guard, whichis the world’s oldest life-saving service and “Semper Paratus” (“Always Ready”) is its theme song.
“We’re always ready for the call,
We place our trust in Thee…”
Our readiness could also be a sign to others!
“Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.” 1 Peter 3:15
