“There’s no will.” These words, former procrastinators, can cause dismay for family and friends. They can usher in lengthy legal problems. They can hinder the grief process when folks are hurting. It’s thoughtful to prepare a will because it simply helps others. It’s part of being a faithful steward.
If you think you have nothing to leave behind that anyone wants, it’s best to get legal advice on that perspective. And on the whole process.
A will can cover many topics; the attorney will guide you.
It’s particularly important to establish who will be the guardians of your minor children. You parents want to determine that, not leaving it up to the state. Guardianship is a huge reason for not putting off the task of writing a will. It’s a huge way to be faithful stewards of the children God has entrusted to you. You can make provision for your children to be raised by a family devoted to the Lord and of like perspective with you if the need arises.
A will also offers opportunity to give to churches or organizations that will further God’s kingdom. What joy to know we can gratefully further His work after we are gone!
This may seem a hard task. Enter into it prayerfully, and you’ll find the Holy Spirit guiding you into decisions and peace.
