I hope you all have made a will… because if you haven’t, strange things, unwanted things will happen to all the worldly goods you leave when you die. Your family will be in a terrible mess. In some places, the government takes over on your behalf. Your favourite first edition books will go to the second hand store and your best underwear might end up on the trash heap
Some estranged fellow from the fifth grade might be the person who gets your car or your house or whatever. (Ok, that’s a slight exaggeration—but you get the idea.
A proper will might help your tax situation and avoid lawsuits between your family members and friends. If you have young children, you will want to be sure they have caretakers in place and money available for their education.
We should be making our own decisions about what happens to our stuff. God gave us these possessions and we ought to be good stewards of all he gives us.
Yes, there might be some legal fees involved, but wouldn’t the peace of mind be worth it? And don’t forget to inquire about a will–concerning your care should you be unable to act on your own behalf.
There’s another will we should be worried about–that is the will of God. The Bible often mentions it. Do you know his will for you?
For this is the will of God, that you be sanctified [separated and set apart from sin]. (1 Thessalonians 4:1a, AMP)
A doer is one who takes action instead of just thinking about it. I hope you will tackle your will and God’s… today.
Prayer – Lord show us what step to take next—in obedience. Amen
