A CHRISTIAN'S WILL
A Last Will and Testament (“Will”) is simply a written set of instructions directing (i) who you want to serve as guardian of any minor children or other dependents, (ii) how assets owned in your name at death should be distributed, and (iii) whom you want to manage your estate after your death. Wills can range from the very simple to the very complex. There is no “one-size-fits-all” Will, and we should be certain our Wills reflect our individual desires and values.
Perhaps you’ve noticed that we titled this section,“The Christian’s Will”. Many people refer to “Christian Wills,” but just as we must take care in using the term “Christian” to describe activities in which we engage (e.g., business dealings, music choices, and marriage), we must also be careful in applying that description to documents we prepare. A Will is not “Christian” simply because a believer executes it, because it contains a testimony, or because it leaves assets to the Lord’s work. These may all be elements of a Christian’s Will, but what sets it apart from a nonbeliever’s Will is planning that reflects the believer’s understanding of his or her position as a steward of the Lord Jesus Christ.
