It’s Jake From State Farm

(1Pe 3:9) Never give back evil for evil, or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, giving blessing, knowing that you are called to this so that you might inherit blessing.

One of my favorite commercials currently scene on TV is the one where the husband is up at 3:00AM in the morning talking to a State Farm Insurance Agent. The wife in a nasty tone asks the question who are you talking to at 3:00AM in the morning? The husband calmly replies it’s Jake from State Farm. The wife not believing her husband grabs the phone who is this? Jake responds yet the wife fails to accept the fact that it really is Jake from State Farm on the phone. This commercial mirrors real life not only in marriages but our daily lives. There are people for whatever reasons are always looking for confrontation instead of learning the truth. If this were a real life situation the husband had concerns about his insurance so much so that it probably kept him from a peaceful night’s sleep. Let’s pause here scripture reminds us that we should not be anxious for anything so actually we should be able to get a good night’s sleep and call Jake in the morning realizing that we look to God in every crisis and situation.

However if this were a real couple the wife has some real trust issues if there is something going on so much so that your husband is losing sleep. Then as a loving caring wife you should want to sit down with your husband and find out what is bothering him to the point that he had to call Jake from State Farm at 3:00AM in the morning. Trust is very important not only in a marriage but numerous other relationships that we have in life. It is very difficult for a marriage or any form of relationship personal or professional to survive without trust. Once trust is gone it is very difficult sometimes impossible to regain. In a marriage it is so important that husbands and wives trust each other. It is just as important not to distrust your husband or wife without proof. Never assume communicate before you make accusations that may prove to be false Be Encouraged and Blessed Minister Mike.
