Your Estate How you choose to steward the resources God has entrusted to you matters a great deal to the one who owns it all. “The world is mine, and all that is in it.” -Psalm 50:12b
Your Estate It is important to use your estate assets to their fullest potential for your family and for His glory. “Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful.” -1 Corinthians 4:2
Your Estate Plan • A Proper Estate Plan Should: • Express God’s plan of stewardship • Provide for all financial and guardianship needs for dependants • Transfer the assets God has entrusted to you to individual and charitable beneficiaries • Transfer your estate in a tax efficient manner with the least possible amount of heartache, cost or delay
Consider this: It is estimated that more than 50% of Americans do not have a current will. Yet for most Americans, 91% of their net worth is in ASSETS versus the 9% in CASH.
Consider this: Without an estate plan in place, you have no voice in the distribution of these assets. They will be distributed by probate court in accordance with the laws of your state.
