The Power of Three (part 2)

If you had to evacuate your home because of a natural disaster, what three things would you take with you?

The recent earthquakes in Japan and New Zealand, along with the floods and cyclones in Queensland make this topic somewhat close to home. What would I take if I could only take 3 things?

  1. My Bible
  2. My computer
  3. My mobile phone
Ouch that means I've got no money or way of getting it, and no ID. Hmmm. I think I'd better ditch the phone and take the handbag instead (which should contain a host of essentials including ID, cash, credit/debit cards and the phone).

Now if it was down to three actual objects, that would be really challenging. I think the Bible would still be there, living overseas I think I'd have to make sure I had my passport, and the phone could save my family a lot of heartache. God would provide all my needs, but I really hope I don't have to be tested on this one in the near future (although I suspect my friends in Japan are thinking that they are really glad they weren't tested in that way).

Definitely challenging.

  1. We have a list posted on the wall and a few bags packed. It isn't a nice thing to think about, but we've come perilously close to acting on what has been a hypothetical previously. I don't think I'll ever look at a hypothetical like that in the same way again.
