A friend asked recently if there was any biblical precedence for life insurance. His assertion was that if God takes care of his people, why carry life insurance.

I would just offer this from 1 Timothy 5:8, “If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.”

I have offered the opinion in previous blogs that men often think of themselves, and especially their egos and their money, ahead of their own wife and children. In Proverbs 15:27 it says “A greedy man brings trouble to his family”.

Bottom line. It is God’s plan that a husband and father should ensure that his family is taken care of, and I don’t think I would be stretching that same thought to include that a single parent, man or woman, should ensure that their children are taken care of.  Please join me in sharing bible verse that supports this idea.
