Great question! It says a lot that you begin here, and so we’ll be happy to help. We believe that God is sovereign and that He does provide for our needs and help us in times of trouble. But we also believe that He ordains the means of that help and that He calls us to be wise. Now, to be sure, the Bible doesn’t talk about “insurance,” but we believe there is support for the wisdom of having it.
Two texts come to mind: While it is not the primary point of the text, we believe that Luke 14:28-29 speaks to the fact that we should plan carefully and wisely before undertaking a project (like a mission trip!). In James 4:13-14, the apostle reminds his readers that, even though they make plans “to go into such and such a town,” they can’t know what will happen – “you do not know what tomorrow will bring.”
