Too often we bask in our comfortable complacency and rationalize that the ravages of war, economic disaster, famine, and earthquake cannot happen here. Those who believe this are either not acquainted with the revelations of the Lord, or they do not believe them. Those who smugly think these calamities will not happen, that they somehow will be set aside because of the righteousness of the Saints, are deceived and will rue the day they harbored such a delusion. - Ezra Taft Benson

Year's Supply of DEBT; FOOD-FREE (Counsel in reverse)

 
“Many more people could ride out the storm-tossed waves in their economic lives if they had their year's supply of food - and were debt-free. Today we find that many have followed this counsel in reverse: they have at least a year's supply of debt and are food-free.”   - Thomas S. Monson (Church News, May 12, 2001)
