Day 38 (April 13): A Legacy Provides PEACE!

Jesus had a great legacy! Interestingly we read that He planned it out beforehand. As we are preparing for Holy Week, do you remember how Jesus foretold His disciples that He wanted them to have PEACE following His death? Checkout John 14:27 which said:

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

If you want your heirs to have PEACE, you should prepare a legally recognized Will. Don’t say: “I don’t have a Will because I don’t have a large sum of money or a grand estate.” Don’t hide behind the excuse: “It cost too much to get a Will prepared.”

Even if you chose to use an online version like Law Depot, it’s better than allowing the courts to decide the fate of your underage children or where your assets should go after your departure. A Will spells out those particular details.

For pennies, a legally prepared Will and Testament can be prepared. It will give you peace of mind. And, it will give your heirs peace of mind. Even if you’re not Donald Trump, you may still have underage children that must have the PEACE of knowing that you planned who should raise them if you died prematurely.
We seldom want to talk about death. Some even think that by not speaking about it will protect them from an untimely death. That’s pretty ridiculous! Yet, as a pastor, I have had the unfortunate experience to eulogize many people in our congregation that did not have a legally prepared (or any type of) Will.

Their family members did not have peace! They were frantic! They were emotionally distraught not only at the loss of their loved ones, but because the pain was compounded without their having a Will.

Please take the time to have a Will prepared; if not for you, for the PEACE of your heirs.

We’re days away from the completion of this powerful journey.

How has it benefited you?
