Should a Christian have a stocked pantry?

Why prepare?
Protection of our families is part of providing for our families:
1Ti 5:8
But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
In the context of this verse the Noah Webster's 1828 defines the word 'Provide' as: PROVI'DE, v.i. To procure supplies or means of defense; or to take measures for counteracting or escaping an evil.

Hmmm.....God sent dreams to a pagan king so they could prepare for the upcoming famine. A prophet in the new testament saw a famine coming and they all prepared. I'd say, "Most emphatically, YES!!!" :)
