“GoFundme is not an insurance policy” - Life insurance is essential to have in place for family in the event of death. Burial expenses are not cheap and may cause additional hardship for a family. There are many policies to choose from, but the most important thing is to have at least a burial policy in place. Get a plan/policy that fits your budget whether it is $10 or $100 per month. Protect the family!
Colossians 1:12 (NIV) – “and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.”
Sam Walton, the founder of Walmart, was once the richest man in the world. When he died, his fortune was estimated at around a hundred billion dollars. Upon his death, his children immediately became wealthy. This had nothing to do with what they had done, but it was because of what their father had accomplished that they received a great inheritance.
We have an inheritance in the kingdom of God. It has nothing to do with what we have accomplished. We cannot earn this inheritance. We simply receive it when we receive Christ by faith, and His Father becomes our Father. By sending His Son to forgive our sins, God qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints.
God, what You have done, what You have given us in Christ, is so awesome that we have a hard time receiving it. It seems too much for us, for we know how unworthy we are. Yet, You have given us such a great inheritance, and it was the death of Jesus that qualified us to receive it. We will not allow such a costly gift to be given in vain. We do receive it from Your hands, and with hearts of gratitude, we say thank You, Lord. Amen.
