The Church practices what it preaches! Think about this -- our leaders have admonished us for decades to get out of debt, to set aside some funds and to have a year's supply of food, right? A critic could complain that "hoarding" a year's supply of food is not Christlike and all that extra food should be distributed right now to food banks. But that criticism assumes (a) that we are not already engaged in charitable causes of all kinds, and importantly (b) that there won't ever be any kind of governmental failure or other calamity that jeopardizes the lives of our families and neighbors. When we put aside a year's supply, we are trying to be responsible, prudent and foresighted. The Church is doing the same.
