Should Christians have insurance?
The thought of not having insurance because of being Christian is ridiculous. There are many Bible verses that warn us of being foolish and being unprepared. Is God protecting His children? Of course, God does protect us from things that we do not see all the time, but that does not mean that we don’t prepare ourselves nor does that mean that we are faithless if we do.
I pray that God keeps me safe and He does. However, that does not mean I will never run into trials. That does not mean I can never get sick, break my leg, get into an auto accident, etc. I remember a story of Christian parents who refused to take their extremely sick child to the hospital because they wanted to have faith that God would heal their child and later the child died due to the ignorance of the parents. What testimony is that to the world? It just shows an extremely unwise decision. Sometimes God heals us through physicians. Car insurance is a great thing to have especially if you have teen drivers. Whether God leads you to get full coverage or liability is a different story. However, we shouldn’t be opposed to having health or auto insurance.
