ARE YOU INSURED?
Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord… He is like a tree planted beside waters… It fears not the heat when it comes… – Jeremiah 17: 7, 8
For the longest time, I was not a believer in having insurance. I thought having one — whether for life, health or car purposes — was a sign of a weak faith in God. But as I grew in financial literacy and in my faith as well, I learned that having an insurance means preparing for the future and not being a burden to my loved ones — something which is congruous to our Christian faith.
So, I began to buy insurance. Now, if the Lord calls me home, my little kids will inherit a tiny fortune e. When I get sick and need to be hospitalized, I don’t have to dip into our family savings to pay for the bill. If my car gets bumped or stolen, it’s covered.
To a certain degree, as some people say, insurance gives us peace of mind. But for me, it doesn’t replace the peace that passes all understanding, the kind that can only comes from knowing who my Savior is.
Insurance companies can only do so much. Even the best of them have toppled during financial crises. But Jesus? He’s the Immovable Rock upon which I stand. With Him, come hell or high water, I’m safe. Rissa Singson-Kawpeng (firstname.lastname@example.org)
In whom do I trust?
Dear Jesus, I cling to You. No matter what trial, hardship or misfortune I go through, You are my Savior.
