Insurance is great when you need to make a claim, but just another expense when all is well. Car insurance of course is compulsory, but other insurance for life or health cover and every last electrical item you buy nowadays is optional.
Personal rant - they claim they are selling you three year's cover, but the manufacturer is up for one or two years anyway so that is not strictly true - and breathe. The small print would take you a lifetime to read so we don't bother and the bottom line is that insurers will not pay out if they can avoid it.
All-in-all insurance is a gamble. Many of my friends do not insure their house. Those without mortgages argue that over the years you save as much as any repairs would cost so why bother?
Insurance of course doesn't prevent bad stuff happening; it is only there to compensate for the consequences. You are not better protected with insurance just maybe, if you are fortunate, better compensated for loss. In life we take risks all the time.
Carol and I were in a Hot-Air balloon recently. Safety equipment – none. Height 500m. Landing equipment - none. What on earth? Our Life Insurers would have walked away, but it was worth it.
Life insurance doesn't stop you dying; it is going to happen. Our compensation is that we are sealed with the Holy Spirit for Eternity. As Christians our promise of compensation is not a gamble but guaranteed because God has promised it. "And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession – to the praise of his glory" Ephesians 1v 13,14
You can find us on Condado de Alhama in the Al Kasar Centre. Come and join us. We offer something a bit different. Sit around and chat over a cup of tea or coffee and learn about God and what He can do for YOU.
