SEVEN YEARS OF PLENTY AND SEVEN YEARS OF FAMINE.
As noted in the Bible (Genesis 41:1-40), God enabled Joseph to interpret the dream of the Pharaoh that there would be seven years of plenty, and seven years of famine in the land of Egypt.
Therefore the Pharaoh sent out the order that food from the fields would be gathered and stored during the years of plenty, to supply the country with food when the years of famine came.
Famine came to the land of Egypt as Joseph had foretold, but the people did eat and survived because there was plenty of food in the storehouses.
We can take note from this Biblical
We cannot always plan at the level we wish, but we certainly can make small steps in preparing for financial emergencies. Simply begin by putting away small amounts of money. Even change money (coins), you can collect in a jar – appreciating the smaller things in life, which could very well save your life one day.
Over a period of a few years, my wife and I saved over $5000 putting away small change and dollar bills in a large plastic water jug. Small things add up.
Let’s prepare in the time of plenty, for the time of famine is sure to come.
God Bless and Trust in Him.
