It’s inevitable. In our world full of constant changes and uncertainties, catastrophes will happen.
When the chaos hits, for example a natural disaster, the loss of a loved one, a personal struggle, finances, or health challenges, what do you do? Many of us explode, many of us implode, some of us panic, some of us get angry at God, some of us turn to God, and a small amount of us are prepared for challenges and are confident we know what to do.
It’s always easier to handle situations when you have a plan even if the plan doesn’t get fully used (or even partially used). Military forces make plans which never go as planned, but it lets them think about things that can go wrong and what they’ll do to overcome those situations. That planning process is very valuable.
