In the house of the wise
are stores of choice food and oil,
but a foolish man devours all he has.
Why is it important to have an extra supply in your home? Even if there were no other reasons, the most important reason is that God has told us in His Word that a wise man has stores of choice food and oil. God's Word tells us that we should not use all that we have, that is the actions of a fool.
I can really see the wisdom in this instruction. Being prepared for the unforeseen, helps prevent worry and fear. With the uncertainty of our economy, the seeming panic that is being stirred up by the constant media coverage of the swine flu, there is enough fear in our country!
It would be a wise action, as we read in the book of Proverbs, to have extra stores of food in your home. That way, if there is a layoff in your home, or a general quarantine imposed upon us, or some other unseen situation, you will have no reason to panic, knowing your family will be well fed.
