Will the men in your life care for your wife and family if something happened to you?

Typically, we think of our friends simply as the men we enjoy spending time with. And most of our friends will purely be a source of fun and happiness in our lives. They are the guys we joke with, watch games with, and even celebrate the milestones of life with.

While fully appreciating these relationships, we also need more.

Who will stand with us through the loss of a job, a miscarriage, or the death of a parent?

The men capable of deeply entering these moments are few. And this is okay.

The men in our life all serve a different purpose. And not everyone is able, willing, or needed to go into the deep places of our story.

At the same time, we need a few good men who are able and willing to go there.

We need men who will stand with us through life – men able to laugh, and also willing to weep with us.

This is not for our sake alone, but also part of how we care for and protect our families.

If something happened to you, who could your wife turn to without question, trusting his strength and integrity in your absence? Who could your children turn to for support and guidance throughout life?

Who stands with our loved ones in the event of our death?

We get life insurance to protect our families financially. But there is more to life than money.

We need friends who can cover what money cannot buy – respected men who can provide strength of presence, protection, and care for our wives and children in our absence.

As much as we don’t like thinking about it, it is immature and foolish not to plan for our death.

But don’t just plan financially. Invest also in friends who can stand in the gap and intercede for your wife and children if something happened to you.
