Anticipate

Kindred,


Are you interested in predicting the future?  


For what purpose?  


Service of humanity, saving the world or selfish interests and personal gain?  


Your choices in the present and future should match the Lord's.  


Even if you win anything of Caesar, if it does not meet the Lord's approval and muster or if it does not serve the Lord's purpose, then it is not really a win.  


If you sell out your principles, lose your integrity, then what is the measure of your character?  


How much further away is the Lord? And thus, how much further away is salvation?  


One aspect of prediction is in the anticipation of what would happen in the future.


What kind of future depends upon the choices made in the here and now.  


When you anticipate a future problem, you take steps to prevent harm or minimize the damage.  


You do not give into fear, throw up your arms and give up.  


There is a season, but there is also a reason, a cause of effect of why something happens.  


Do you understand why something happens?  


The reasons why?  


For example, the nature of a virus means it cannot replicate and survive long outside a host. If you give it a host, the virus can survive and spread. This does not magically happen, it happens for a reason.  


When you anticipate what a virus will do, you take into account the behaviors of potential hosts and possible mutations.  


If the trend of COVID-19, are mutations which cause younger and younger people/hosts to be infectious and symptomatic, then you can anticipate the problem.  


Are you able to recognize the real enemy when dealing with contagions?  


The contagion is the real enemy and ignorance.  


Consider what you can do to be helpful and please, if you have to error, error on the side of caution.  


Save a life.  


Anticipate problems and adapt.  


"Constant Vigilance!"
