August 3

Leave an Estate

More than half of all Americans will die intestate. Do you know that word? It means that they have no written Last Will and Testament. If you die intestate, the state will make all decisions regarding the disposition of your property and then charge your estate for its services.

Why on earth would people not make a will? Well, people do procrastinate, assuming that someday they will get around to it and never do. Or they reason that when they’re dead, they won’t care how their estate is carved up. Or they think they’re immortal. Or they have a phobia about death and hate even thinking about it.

God loves it when people plan ahead with management of his stuff, and he absolutely loves it when people plan to take care of succeeding generations. “A good man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children” (Proverbs 13:22). A bequest helps turn your children and grandchildren from renters into homeowners. It can help a grandchild go to college. It can relieve a crippling debt. It can help start a business.

It says thank you to the God who gave you such a great heritage from those who have gone before you.

Good for Business

Being a Christian and excelling at your job aren’t two separate things. In fact, the way you speak, act, and treat others at work is actually a way of worshiping God.

We want to help you live with Christian integrity in every area of your life by sending you our 30-day devotional Good for Business. These inspiring nuggets of truth from God’s Word will encourage and equip you to live with integrity in your day-to-day routine. You’ll learn how a life lived well can show Jesus to others—and speak volumes about the Savior you represent.

Good for Business is our thank-you for your donation to help bring the timeless truths of God’s Word to more people all over the world. Request your copy today!
