(Ezra Taft Benson, October 1973)
“The revelation to store food may be as essential to our temporal salvation today as boarding the ark was to the people in the days of Noah.”
Many disregarded the warning when Noah heeded, why did they do that??
Was it not popular?
Was it too much work?
Did they think it wasn't gonna happen?
Did they not have time?
Were they too busy? With what?
Were they gonna get to it... eventually?
We receive many heedings or warnings - stop lights come to mind, tornado warnings, blizzard warnings, flood warnings, these all have watches as well. In Noah’s day they must have had things too, not all high tech like we have. And we know they had Prophets who warned the people of that day of things that were to come and to get their acts together. President Benson was a Prophet that was who the quote is from. We have had many Prophets that have warned us, including president Monson, our current Prophet.
What are you doing? Are you heeding the warnings or do you just ignore that part and pick what you want? Even though you see people losing their jobs? When you hear that on the news, do you think how hard it must be for them and their families? Do you ever think what if it was you?
We all have the choice to pay attention or not, it is up to you.
