You may ask what is the difference between a regular Will and a Christian Will? They are similar in many respects, but the primary difference is behind the scenes. What sets apart a Christian Will is the planning that reflects the believer’s understanding of his or her position as a steward of the Lord Jesus Christ.
A Will is simply a set of instructions for the Probate Court directing who you want to be guardian of your minor children, how assets owned at your death should be distributed and who you would want to manage your estate after your death. Some Wills are very simple, while some can be extremely complex. It is important that this document reflects your desires and values.
If you are a parent of minor children, it is extremely important that you have a Will. This document is the only document recognized by the Court whereby you can name your preference for guardian of your minor children.
BSS can explain the process and contents of a Will more fully. We are encouraged “…whatsoever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31). This is part of the “whatsoever” that many Christians overlook, yet will leave a lasting impression on family, friends and countless others if it is done for the glory of God.
