Life insurance is a basic need. At least that what an op-ed in The Economic Times March 30, 2011, says. It’s the first step in financial planning. In a way, all investments are insurance against financial risk and all insurance is an investment for a better tomorrow, If you’re sitting in your easy chair any place in America, you would probably agree. You all need insurance “just in case.” I’m not arguing the benefits today, but I am thinking beyond conventional thinking. What about the millions of people throughout the world who can’t or could never afford life insurance? What is their policy against the risk that faces every mortal?
It’s fairly simple. It’s family. If something happens to the primary breadwinner, the rest of the family steps up. I’ve personally seen this to be true in India, Africa, and Vietnam. Risk protection is a family value…and a pretty high one. Their “life insurance” is a strong family unit where members depend on one another. A portion of this thinking is wrapped up into Ephesians 6:2-3 “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” How strong is your life insurance policy? I’m not referring to the conventional kind. How strong is your family when life goes south? Need some help? Check out our family resources.
