The Greatest Priority in Life

To discuss this lesson on the greatest priority in life, I am going to refer to John3:1-13, which is a talk between Jesus and Nicodemus.  This is what it says, now there a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council.  He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know you are a teacher who has come from God.  For no one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God was not with him.” In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.”  How can a man be born again when he is old?” Nicodemus asked him.  Surely, he can not enter a second time in his mother’s womb to be born!”  Jesus answered, I tell you the truth, and no-one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit.  Flesh give birth to flesh and the Spirit gives birth to spirit.  You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘you must be born again.’ The wind blows whenever it pleases.  You hear its sound but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going.   So it is with every one born of the Spirit,” How can this be?’ Nicodemus asked.   You are an Israel teacher,” Said Jesus, “and you do not understand these things?  I tell you the truth, we speak of what we know, and we testify of what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony.   I have spoken to you of earthily things and you do not believe; how then can you believe if I speak to you of Heavenly things?  In this text, Jesus emphasizes that the greatest priority in human life is to be born again.

Most human beings have various misunderstandings about the things they consider as of the greatest priority in life.   Below are two of these misunderstandings.

Honor as the greatest priority in life

Nicodemus considered human honor as one of his greatest priorities in life.  This is the reason why he decided to come to Jesus at night.  He was conscious of what people say about him and thought that going to do some inquiries from Jesus during the day time would defame him.  Those who have received Jesus as the Lord and savior should always have in mind the   truth that the greatest priority in life should be being born again.  Once you are born again you become a child of God not a weak coward who depends on others for self evaluation.   Children of God, who have discovered that being born again is the greatest priority in their lives and go an extra step of sharing the same realization, have received God’s grace.

Miraculous signs as the greatest priority in life

The Principle of Contribution

The Principle of Contribution was developed under common law to deal with the sharing of the cost of liability where two or more persons are jointly liable to another for the same loss.

In the context of insurance practice, contribution can be defined as the right of an insurer to call upon others who are similarly but not necessarily equally liable to the same insured for his loss to share the cost of indemnity. Business Training in Kenya has more information.

Rules Governing The Principle of Contribution in Insurance

There must exist two or more policies of indemnity. This means that the insurances covering the property or the subject matter must be contracts of indemnity. Contribution does not apply to contracts of life assurance and permanent health assurance which are clearly not contracts of indemnity.

Each of the policies must be insuring the same subject matter of insurance which was lost or damaged. The property which has been affected by the loss must be common to all policies. The extent of amount of property need not necessarily be the same, for instance it may be only one item which is lost which is covered by both policies which also cover other property. One policy could be covering buildings and stock while the other is more specific to stock only. Any loss on stock would be addressed by both policies for purposes of contribution.

Each policy must insure the peril that has operated to cause the loss. Again the range of perils covered by each policy needs not to be the same. One policy could be insuring several perils whilst the other covers only one which however common to both policies and which causes the loss.
