Do you worry about a natural disaster? Do you have an emergency kit ready?
Here in New Zealand we are bombarded with advice on getting ready in case a natural disaster strikes. In our house we are prepared with everything but the kitchen sink packed and ready. Including water & food for 2 weeks, blankets, tents, medical supplies etc. Are you prepared for a disaster? Do you keep meaning to get around to it? Or do you have no intention of being ready for anything!
No I don't. However, if I lived in a country or area of a country that was prone to natural disasters, I would certainly be prepared. In any event, how can one really prepare for a unexpected natural disaster? If you prepare your home for one and you are out of your home when the disaster occurs then you will still be unprepared.
Knowing my luck the fact I am prepared I would be in a shopping centre miles away from our emergency kit!

Why would God create such a hostile environment for humans such as the Earth? There are all kinds of natural disasters; earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, etc, that in the last decade alone have accounted for hundreds of thousands of deaths. Why couldn't God have created a safer Earth for humans?
