To which I always reply, "Must we be commanded in ALL things??". Fact is, we have been - but we have not collectively listened and have put the inspired counsel at naught. For this, we will collectively pay a high toll.
Here is something I found on FB that nails my feelings down perfectly:
The Prophet didn't warn the people of Venezuela that they'd be facing martial law, food shortages, rioting, murder and imprisonment. He didn't tell them they would be hunting dogs and cats in the streets just to put food on their tables. But here they are, living those exact things. The Prophet didn't warn the people in Fort McMurray to have their 72 hour kits ready, yet here they are, evacuated with all of their earthly possessions gone. Let this be a lesson to all of those who say they're waiting for a warning from the Prophet. The prophets have been warning us for over a century now. We must be prepared. We must be ready to depart and start anew. We must be prepared to provide for ourselves, our families and our neighbors. Let's spend less time perusing forums for the latest dream or vision and spend more time figuring out what to sell in order to have funds to prepare. Let's spend less time watching TV or running kids to soccer practice and spend more time in the temple, doing family history and visiting our neighbors. Let's lift up the feeble hand and provide succor to those in need. There is only today for tomorrow we know not the circumstances in which we will be living.
