Life Insurance

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

Millions of people have life insurance policies. But according to recent data, when benefits become available, more than one-quarter of these policies go unclaimed. Many people do not realize that, if they take no action, they receive no benefits.

Some have failed to notify companies when they move. One insurance company recently reported that it did not have current addresses for 400,000 policyholders. Another could not locate 1.2 million policyholders.

It has been reported that in one year alone, trustees took custody of $22.8 billion, but less than $1 billion was claimed. Many never received the funds that are due them.

Clearly, some people are foolish about their insurance. They are like the rich man whose land was “very productive” (v. 16). He tore down his barns and built larger ones. But he was trusting in his resources.

He said to himself, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years to come; take your ease, eat, drink and be merry.” God called him a “fool.” He had stored up treasure for himself but was “not rich toward God” (v. 19-21).

What kind of spiritual life insurance policy do you have? Are you trusting in the things of this world? Or are you trusting in God? He wants you to have peace and receive all the blessings He has prepared for you. Be sure to invest in His kingdom and then claim your inheritance.
