By Robert Foster

Should a Christian store up food and supplies in preparation for the days ahead, or should we simply trust the Lord and not do anything for the welfare of our household?

Over the years, I’ve heard a variety of people offer their advice on this subject.

Many seem to have the idea that to store away any supplies shows a profound lack of faith and possibly some hidden sin causing you not to place your trust in the Lord.
