One of my favorite verses from the Bible that has really always stuck with me and inspired me to be part of the Insurance industry is James 4:14: ‘Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.’
It causes me to reflect on how little time on this earth we are promised. The time with family and friends is precious. Life goes by so quickly. Tomorrow is not promised and yet we can choose to live for today, celebrating the time we do have right now.
When someone asks me, “Why would I ever buy life insurance?” I often ask for them to take a moment to get outside of themselves and think about their loved ones. What they would do if he/she was not around tomorrow. Because tomorrow is not promised, it makes reality set home to consider the tangible needs that their loved ones will need for the present and the future. Most often the person I’m talking to has an inner battle going on inside, “I’m going to be gone, so what do I care?” VS “What will my family truly need if I’m gone?”
There isn’t much that hasn’t already been said about life insurance. So, I just like to keep it honest and straightforward. To consider life insurance and pay for it each month you must genuinely love another person, the survivors after you’re gone. Because it really is not about you when you go ahead and pay that premium. It is the consideration of others before yourself to provide if you don’t come home at the end of the day.
