Don Davis Column: Invest in the true whole life policy

In 1959, I re-enlisted in the Air Force and, with my bonus, I purchased my first automobile.

So, I turned to what Yogi Berra called “that other insurance.”

I don’t mean the one with the duck, but the one with the gecko.

In those days, their primary clients were those in the military. I still have the same policy number.

Why did I go with them and stay with them so long?

Obviously, I needed someone to accept me. It was very difficult to get insurance being less than 25 years old and in the military.

Even though I was young and inexperienced, they wanted my business.

They have proven to be a very reliable company whom I could trust.

Without reservation, I recommend this automobile insurance company to anyone.

The most common types of life insurance are whole life, universal life and the last, term life.

Even though I have selected one of these to provide support for my wife if I should die, I cannot tell you which type insurance or company is best for you and your family.

But, unless you are independently wealthy, life insurance is needed to provide family financial support after you are gone.

I have said all this to tell you about another type insurance that lasts throughout eternity.

The remarkable thing is our benefits are beyond this world with no premium.

Though it is free, it came at a great expense to the provider for he let his only son die to pay the price for us.

Those who attended the movie “The Passion of the Christ,” saw graphically what the son did making full payment for our sins.

This is the only true whole life policy in existence.

It starts when you answer God’s call to accept His son as savior and lord, and trust him in your daily life. Eternal life begins when you accept Jesus as lord and extends throughout eternity.

Jesus said, “I have come that you may have life and have it more abundantly.”

Are you having a full and meaningful life or is it jammed packed with toil, anger and fear?

Jesus gives the invitation to come to him.

Come for personal cleansing, ” ‘Come now, let us reason together,’ says the Lord, ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; thought they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.’ ”

Come for rest of soul. “Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Come at the threefold call.

“The Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come!’ And let him who hears say, ‘Come!’

“Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.”

Jesus is calling.

You must answer his call to receive full coverage to last throughout eternity.

Jesus never fails.

The Rev. Don Davis is a retired Baptist minister.
