Planning for transfer of earthly goods.
 

For those of us who seek to follow the Lord's leading in our life, submitting to His example in the transfer of our earthly wealth should not be a very difficult concept. Jesus did not have many earthly possessions—and those few articles of clothing that he did own, were confiscated by the Romans at His crucifixion. But He exercised the one final earthly responsibility remaining to Him when he formally asked the apostle John to take care of His mother Mary (John 19:26-27).

Unfortunately many, if not most, do not make even the simplest plans.

Please make a formal, written will.

If you do not know how or need information about making a will, let us send you some basic information.

Please provide for your family.

There are many considerations here, but the Bible clearly says, "But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel" (I Timothy 5:8).

Please consider sharing within the Kingdom.

Without specific instructions in your will or the conscious execution of charitable instruments in addition to your will, the "Romans" (U.S. tax laws) will "cast lots" for your "garments" (John 19:24).

Let us know how ICR can help.

ICR has developed a number of booklets that provide both conceptual and specific information about the transfer of wealth for your family and to the Lord's kingdom. Check the box on the return envelope for Stewardship information or call or drop us an e-mail. We'll get back to you as soon as we can.
