Why do we exercise our freedom to health share?

Mat 25:34-40 NLT – 34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. 36 I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’ 37 “Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? 39 When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 “And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’

I’ve always been struck by this passage of Scripture, having thought through it many times in my life, often explaining it to people as the ‘cup of cold water’ principle. What grabs me every time is that there are opportunities to do good all around us, in both our immediate and larger contexts. And when we do good to others, Jesus is saying that we have served him. When we serve the poor, we are serving Jesus. When we heal the sick, we are serving Jesus. In other words where there is need there is an opportunity to serve Jesus.

I’m a fan of health sharing and have been for over twenty years for it allows me to come alongside those that have need.

The last few years I’ve grown increasingly frustrated with my own rising costs of private insurance and in order to control those costs I have accepted less insurance coverage. Having finally taken the plunge into Health sharing, and more pointedly, Freedom Healthshare, it brings to me an opportunity to not only control my medical costs, but reach out to those that have need. This brings me joy.

The Golden Rule of Scripture is ‘do to others as you would have them do to you.’ And when that is done, we serve Jesus in a very tangible way. I hope you’ll consider becoming an active part of Freedom HealthShare.
