“What is that?” you’re probably asking. Well, by its name, it’s a bag in your car with some essentials you would need to get back home if, say, your car broke down, there was an accident or a natural disaster.
A Get Home Bag has things like:
- Water bottle
- Water filter
- Medical kit
- Small knife
- Proper clothes - Depending on the season.
These are pretty much the bare necessities, you would obviously be free to add to this list at any time. The point of a Get Home Bag is to make the inconvenient, a little more convenient.
Something like a Get Home Bag would be a perfect thing to give to a college kid in your life. It’s kind of like insurance. You might not need it, but then again your college kid could get stuck in a snowstorm with a dead car battery, and the only thing separating possible hazardous circumstances being a Get Home Bag in the backseat, filled with the essentials.
You never know what’s around the corner. Pray, hope, and don’t worry, of course, but also be prepared. We are physical beings, and we need physical things. God has arranged it this way. These are some good ideas to consider. More about this on our Train and Prepare page. Think about it.
God Bless. Zac!
