Are Your Plans As Obsolete as the Rotary Phone?

Are Your Plans As Obsolete as the Rotary Phone?

A technology company took out a full-page ad announcing the release of their spectacular new computer. The headline promised, “The personal computer with expandable memory, advanced peripherals and comprehensive software, so it will never become obsolete.” The year was 1979 and the computer was the Atari 800.

Nearly forty years later, we’ve seen many products and services go the way of the Atari 800, including VCRs, rotary telephones and even encyclopedias. But what you may not have considered is that your Estate Plan could be obsolete as well.

Ensuring your Estate Plan is up-to-date and a true reflection of your personal values is a form of exercising Biblical stewardship – a practice that will never go out of style. Having an up-to-date Will means you acknowledge that everything you own has been given to you by God and you want to take care of it wisely – even after your death. Did you know you can designate a gift in your Will to a ministry you care about like Grace Bible College? This action will not only set a powerful example for your family, it also gives you an opportunity to invest in eternal incorruptible purposes too. Matthew 6:20 says “…lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in or steal” (Matthew 6:19-20).

There are many life changes that indicate an update to your Estate Plan may be in order. Do you know what they are?
