God has enabled me to live a wonderful life. I thank God that I’ve lived my life virtually pain free. At 56 years of age, I’ve never had more than a 1 night stay in a hospital. That one night was spent in recovery for a tonsillectomy I underwent when I was 6 years old. I don’t believe I will ever spend an extended amount of time in a hospital. Based upon my medical history, and my belief that I will never spend and extended amount of time in a hospital, you might say that I could cancel my medical insurance because I’ll probably never need it.
I got my driver’s license at age 15 1/5 in 1976. I’ve been driving both privately and commercially for over 38 years. To date, I’ve never been involved in a traffic accident. I don’t believe that I will ever be involved in a traffic accident. Based upon my driving record, the professional driver training courses I’ve taken over the years, along with my belief that I will never be involved in a traffic accident, you might say that I could cancel my auto insurance, since it’s obvious I don’t need it.
If you’re at a crossroads in your life I encourage to you to take 15 minutes right now. Sit in silence and listen to what the Spirit of God has to say to your heart.
No home that I have ever lived in as a child or as an adult has ever been burglarized. I take precautions, and I continually guard my home against being burglarized. For those reasons, I don’t believe I will ever be a victim of any type of home invasion. Based upon my past history, and the belief that my home will never be invaded, you might say that I could cancel my homeowner’s insurance policy because I won’t need it.
If I took the stance I’ve outlined in the 3 scenarios above, you might accuse me of being arrogant, ignorant, and downright stupid when it comes to life and the possibility of unforeseen things happening in my life. And you would be absolutely correct to think so.
Take the Path of Minimum Risk
Insurance is our safety net. Insurance is our bail out. Insurance protects us from things that are unforeseen. Humans are fallible beings. We make mistakes all the time. Mistakes in actions, mistakes in judgment, mistakes based up misinformation and mistakes based upon our physical frailties happen every day.
Even when we don’t intend to make mistakes, we still make them constantly. Because we miss the mark so often, it’s comforting to know that we have the safety net of a good insurance policy to support us when unforeseen calamity rears its ugly head.
Always go with the Guarantee in Life
Minimizing risk is the hallmark of how I live my life. For instance, statistically 1 out of every 4 drivers on the highway between 2:00AM and 5:00AM on the weekend are intoxicated. The statistics of drunk drivers who run into houses and injure their occupants during those same hours are so small that they don’t even keep that statistic.
Knowing these facts, I do all I can to avoid driving and I require my children to be at home during those hours on the weekends. Why? Because it’s virtually impossible for anyone in my family to be harmed by a drunk driver during the hours of 2AM and 5AM on the weekend while they are at home. They may fall out of bed and injure themselves. They may stub their toes on the way to the kitchen for a glass of water, but the odds if being hurt by a drunk driver are virtually nonexistent.
We all are different in our approach to life. Some might say that I live an ultra conservative life and those who think so might be correct in their way of thinking. But for someone to have knowledge of anything in life that increases the likelihood of injury or death and yet deliberately increases those chances when an alternate option is available to them is foolishness to me.
God has a Guaranteed Insurance Policy
The bible tells us that those who do not accept Jesus Christ and make Him the Lord of their lives in this life will live separated from God and experience eternal torment in Hell. I don’t know if this is true or not. I can’t prove it. But I believe it. I believe it enough to have made Jesus Christ the Lord of my life.
Even if I am wrong about how I will spend eternity, I wouldn’t trade the peace that I am experiencing now in this life as a result of the active involvement of God in my life through the Holy Spirit for anything the world has to offer.
For those who don’t believe in hell and an eternity of torment separated from God, what if you’re wrong? Have you ever been wrong before about something you would have bet your life that you were right about? Is jeopardizing your eternal existence worth the arrogance of thinking that there is no hell?
If you’re right, so be it. But if you’re wrong, you’ve got everything to lose. And if you are indeed wrong, living an eternity in hell knowing that you read these words and didn’t act on them will be a constant reminder of a life that was lost for no reason.
