Think about provision for the future

According to an article in Today in the World, "

In the spring of 1981, a young man was flown into desolate northern Alaska to photograph the natural beauty and mysteries of the tundra. He took along 500 rolls of film, several firearms, and 1,400 pounds of provisions.

"As the months passed, the words in his diary changed from wonder and fascination into a nightmare. In August he wrote, 'I think I should have used more foresight about arranging my departure. I'll soon find out.' In November he died in a nameless valley, by a nameless lake, 225 miles northeast of Fairbanks. An investigation revealed that though he had carefully planned his trip, he had made no provision to be flown out.

"Difficult to imagine isn't it? How could anyone be so foolish or even forgetful? He made every provision for his journey except how to get home! Unbelievable!

"How tragic," we may say. And yet, how many of us make every provision for life here on earth but no preparation for our departure?. Give a deep thought about this and plan our provision for the future.
