We have life insurance. My wife is the main breadwinner and owns a clinic so is covered heavily, while I am a "rider" on her policy! When kids were little and I was the breadwinner, she had a minimal amount and I was covered heavily. We pay about $1400 a year in life/disability (let's not go into various types of policies; I could bore you to tears). When we were young in the ministry, an old pastor said we should just TRUST GOD. He died and left his widow nothing. They had no home (had lived in parsonages), little savings that were not enough for the funeral. Our state Baptist association put out a plea to all the pastors and churches to take special offering for this widow and enough was received to let her live meagerly for many years. So, he "trusted God" and his wife WAS provided for. But it seemed presumptuous to me, not faith, and put a burden on ALL the baptists in our state that should have been HIS burden when alive. That's two sides to the insurance issue. Your thoughts?
