The story of Joseph in the Old Testament talks about using the good times to prepare for the hard times. I'm not personally dealing with a flood, or fire right now - even though many are. So now is the time to get fit. To prepare for emergencies, to build strength and stamina. It'll only get harder to do when you really need it. Seems like common sense - but it's Biblical common sense.
