“A hailstorm will knock down the shantytown of lies, and a flash flood will wash out the rubble. Then you’ll see that your precious life insurance policy
wasn’t worth the paper it was written on.” Isaiah 28:17,18
I was a bit amused when I opened the mail today and discovered an offer for guaranteed coverage for a whole life insurance policy for my deceased spouse. When Glen passed I was the beneficiary of his life insurance policy. I’ve never fully understood why they aren’t called a death policy, as the proceeds can’t be paid out to the insured.
Glen knew he was very ill and would not live long. We talked about important issues, and I told him, “You know you are leaving me financially okay, don’t you?” And, he said, “Yes.” He had done everything while he was alive to provide for me, should I survived him, including having a whole life insurance policy.
Glen received Christ as his Savior and became baptized at age 28. It was his path to obtaining “life insurance” with God upon his death. We can’t go to an insurance agent and get that kind of insurance for eternal life. It is comforting to know Glen is at peace, in a new heavenly body with good lungs, surrounded by friends and family, and patiently waiting to be joined by those he loved.
Dear God, I’m grateful when I confess my sins and ask for forgiveness, I can receive my salvation insurance policy with no premiums. Amen.
