Emergency Preparedness – Self-sufficient Servants Survive.
There is nothing like an emergency to force people to make decisions. Immediately, by action or lack of, people decide whether they will be survivors or victims. Do nothing (that’s a decision) and you will probably die without outside help. The most lethal element to survival is giving up on your self.
Survivors require a self-sufficient attitude from education and/or experience. People are willing to give up least what they have worked for most – first priority is they have to want to survive starting right now.
One of the most important qualities of survival is selflessness. When survivors are worried about others more than self they focus their energies to save them, and by so doing have greater reason to live. They give more than they consume, worry less about the consequences, and actually strengthen from their service. They feed their attitude and reason for living more than they feed their bellies. Some sea survivors lasted twice as long without fresh water as others with whom they shared left the life raft and gave up.
Prayer has been identified as a survivor essential – humbly acknowledging personal limitations while enrolling heaven to help self of others. Survivors freely admit that divine guidance aided their survival.
Everyday is practice day for doomsday. Being a selfless servant is daily OJT for being a survivor.
