Grace Moments Devotions - December 12, 2017

Leave a legacy

The potential client was listening to the life insurance guy and interrupted: “So let me get this straight. If I die . . .” He couldn’t finish the sentence because the salesman was laughing. “What do you mean, ifyou die?”

Call me naïve, but I’m a family guy, and I’ve always kind of assumed that most people have given some serious thought to getting their financial records in order for the time when they die, so that their estate can be passed on to their heirs in an orderly way and so that they can give a gift to the Lord’s work one last time.

How wrong I was. State probate officials report that almost 70% of Americans die intestate (without a will). How is it possible for otherwise reasonably bright people to push that important planning into perpetual mañana?

Wouldn’t you like to leave your children and your church something besides debts? “A good man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children” (Proverbs 13:22). 


Challenge Grant makes your gift worth TWICE as much!

Generous donors have stepped forward with a $350,000 grant—and they’re challenging friends like you to meet it in full!

That means your gift will be worth TWICE as much to help share the timeless truths of God’s Word through television and digital outreach.

When you give, we’ll say thanks by sending you our 30-day devotional book Here I Am, Lord to help you build a closer connection with God.
