Some assembly required

Preparation - it can be found throughout scripture. Noah had to prepare for the flood that destroyed Earth's population. Naomi prepared Ruth to impress Boaz and capture his attention. Joseph was placed in charge of the preparations that needed to occur during the seven years of plenty so that the seven years of famine would be survivable.
