TODAY THE WORDS are MONEY BACK GUARANTEE. What goes through our minds when we see or hear the tag line, Money Back Guarantee? Do you feel relieved or do you feel as I do sometimes? If the product is this phenomenal why do they feel they should guarantee it? Or, do you feel this product has to be the best, the greatest, the most prolific product if they are willing to back it with a money back guarantee? Interesting question and I am imagining most of us would be on both sides of this discussion. As a marketer, the less risk I ask people to take; the better the closing ratio. However, I have some thoughts about guarantees and risks in life. As adventurers of life, we expect some risks, calculated risks; but we fear the unexpected risks and we cherish guarantees and warranties. I have experienced many adventures in life; some risky and some calculated risks. Some adventures were worth the risk; others could have been avoided by better judgment on my part. How do we know if we can afford the risk when there is no money back guarantee or as I like to think it as a soul back guarantee? Do we value our state of our soul or are we willing to risk our souls for a little excitement or risk? Have you taken a big risk with no guarantee and found it worth the risk or were you having the guilt complex for not checking all of the consequences this risk might result by your actions? Life comes with no money back guarantees; God offers a guarantee of how our lives may be richly blessed in eternity. There is no tag hanging on our sleeve which displays God’s guarantee but His guarantees come in His Operating Manual with full (no need to pay as that debt was paid by Our Savior) with full instructions on how we need to properly care for, maintain, share with others, and enjoy the “performance of a blessed life” when we follow the instructions God provides. I will accept the risks which come with the unknown parts of life when I have God’s money back guarantee of an everlasting reward in paradise with my loved ones and dear friends. Look for God’s tag and trust His Promises.
