Prepping and the Proverbs 31 Woman

It recently occurred to me that Proverbs has a lot to say about being prepared; especially Proverbs 31. I came to this realization while conversing with Andrea and friends over at Chicky-Bit Run and by daily reading a chapter in Proverbs for each corresponding day of the month. For example on June 3rd, I read Proverbs 3. On June 29th, I read Proverbs 29. (I plan to continue this at least for the remainder of the year, perhaps indefinitely as Proverbs has so much wisdom packed into it!) Instead of a lot of commentary today, I'm just listing some of the scriptures that have come to my attention related to the topic of prepping. I will let the Word and the Holy Spirit speak... 

"She is not afraid of the snow for her household, For all her household are clothed with scarlet." Proverbs 31:21 

"Strength and dignity are her clothing, And she smiles at the future." 
Proverbs 31:25

"She looks well to the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness." 
Proverbs 31:27 

"There is precious treasure and oil in the dwelling of the wise, But a foolish man swallows it up."
Proverbs 21:20 

"The ants are not a strong people, But they prepare their food in the summer;"
Proverbs 30:25 

"Go to the ant, O sluggard, Observe her ways and be wise, Which, having no chief, Officer or ruler, Prepares her food in the summer And gathers her provision in the harvest.
Proverbs 6:6-8

"Do not boast about tomorrow, For you do not know what a day may bring forth." 
Proverbs 27:1

"Know well the condition of your flocks, And pay attention to your herds; For riches are not forever, Nor does a crown endure to all generations. When the grass disappears, the new growth is seen, And the herbs of the mountains are gathered in, The lambs will be for your clothing, And the goats will bring the price of a field, And there will be goats' milk enough for your food, For the food of your household, And sustenance for your maidens." 
Proverbs 27:23-27

"He who tills his land will have plenty of food, But he who follows empty pursuits will have poverty in plenty."
Proverbs 28:19 

"He who tills his land will have plenty of bread, But he who pursues worthless things lacks sense." 
Proverbs 12:11
