But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.
– Matthew 6:20 NIV
There is a common expression that “change is the only constant in life.” We often experience this with our business, our residence, even our families. There is much that changes around us that we do not think about or want to consider such as health concerns, changes in the law, and/or a rapidly changing financial landscape.
These times in your life are also good times to consider the planning or updating of your will. Most of us do not want to think about this topic, or we think we did it once a long time ago and all is fine. However, just like our homes, estate planning should have regular maintenance. Situations and circumstances change over time, and your will should reflect and adjust to those changes. A will may be one of the most important documents you ever draft. It will protect your family and your assets and will ensure peace of mind.
By adding a bequest in your will, you guarantee the philanthropic priorities of your life are reflected in your legacy. The spiritual priorities you valued during your life, such as expanding the Kingdom of God and sharing the Gospel around the world, can continue through a legacy gift to Haggai International.
A bequest included as a provision in your will is the simplest way to distribute your estate. Haggai International can be named as a beneficiary through a will or in a codicil to your will. A codicil is a supplemental amendment to your will that does not require you to have your entire will redrafted.
