Be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear” (I Peter 3:15).

Are you ready? Will you be prepared when an opportunity suddenly arises out of nowhere? Many times we miss incredible opportunities because we didn’t taken full advantage of the time that God gave us while we were waiting.

The importance of always being prepared is illustrated in this classic story from the American Civil War.
