Good people leave an inheritance to their grandchildren. Proverbs 13:22

Many people are reluctant to draw up a will.  At a subconscious level, they fear that as soon as they do, they’ll “cash in their chips”.  In scripture long life is one of God’s promises to us: “Fear of the Lord lengthens one’s life”.  So with that in mind, here’s an important question for you to answer, sooner rather than later. If you died tomorrow would your money, your home, your furnishings, your clothing and your valuables go to the people you intended?  The best way to be certain is to sit down now while you’re in good health and sound mind and write down what you want to leave and to whom. Do you want to leave a certain amount to your family or your church or a ministry or charity you believe in? If you do, call a lawyer and have it clearly spelled out in a legal document.  Don’t leave a mess, that’ll mean more work for the courts, more taxes for the government and a legacy of disappointment and confusion for your loved ones. Your stewardship doesn’t end at the grave. Good people leave an inheritance to their grandchildren.
