Is Your Love Temporary or Eternal? Show them with Life Insurance
What I hope this blog impresses upon you is the importance and need for permanent life insurance. Let me begin by saying that this blog is not nor am I devaluing or discounting the importance of temporary (Term) life insurance. Term insurance is “just in case”, high face amounts for low premium cost. The odds of dying while covered under a term policy are very low…just in case.
How do you know someone loves you? Is it when they tell you? With regard to romantic love, I knew my fiancée loved me before she spoke the words. Her actions were the embodiment of her feelings towards me. Regardless of the type of love you may be lucky enough to be a party to, how do you know that it’s real? Do the actions, match the words?
My family and friends do things for me that others would not because they love me. I don’t need to hear three of the most over used and loosely thrown around words. I already know. As term life insurance is temporary, when you think of why you are getting the coverage, do you first ask yourself, how long will I love my family for? Of course not. We acknowledge that the need is greatest when you’re young, but death comes to us all at some point in time. The need for life insurance doesn’t last for 1, 5, 10, 15, 20 or 30 years, it is only most evident at early ages.
Funerals cost the same whether you pass when you’re 40 or 90. Yet people tend to protect their loved ones when they’re 40 and not when they’re 90; typically because it costs less to do so at younger ages. Those of you that do love and have those that love you, know that love is not always convenient. Try this, start a permanent policy at an earlier age while you’re still in good health and when it’s still affordable.
“I will spend an eternity loving you, caring for you, respecting you, showing you every day that I hold you as high as the stars.” -Steve Maraboli
How do you love? Temporarily? Conditionally? Or maybe only when it’s convenient? Show the people you care about how much you love them in life and in death. Permanent life insurance will show your loved ones that in the saddest of moments, you continue to love and protect them. Don’t just speak the words; show that your love is eternal. It costs less than you think and a lot less than what it will cost your loved ones if you don’t get it.
