Words of The Prophets

Today is the Sabbath. A great day to ponder the words of the prophets. As I started studying for this post I was guided to a talk that President Benson gave in 1980. In it he states,
"The revelation to produce and store food may be as essential to our temporal welfare today as boarding the Ark was to the people in the days of Noah." WHOA!!
He then continues by quoting Elder Harold B. Lee from a welfare Conference to the church.
“Perhaps if we think not in terms of a year’s supply of what we ordinarily would use, and think more in terms of what it would take to keep us alive in case we didn’t have anything else to eat, that last would be very easy to put in storage for a year … just enough to keep us alive if we didn’t have anything else to eat. We wouldn’t get fat on it, but we would live; and if you think in terms of that kind of annual storage rather than a whole year’s supply of everything that you are accustomed to eat which, in most cases, is utterly impossible for the average family, I think we will come nearer to what President J. Reuben Clark, Jr., advised us way back in 1937.” (In Welfare Conference, 1 October 1966.)
Here's the link to this wonderful talk: President Benson's Talk

I pray we will heed the counsel of the prophets and get our food storage NOW!!
