Life Well Spent
The Benefits of Investing For Eternity
Evangelism is a way of life to a believer in Jesus Christ. We are taught and encouraged to witness to others in our talk, in our walk, and in our actions.
I’ll be glad to send you information you can use to help with the planning of your estate documents. You may receive this complimentary material by writing or calling our office at (901) 382-7900.
You might want to consider that the Will of the Christian should be different and have the following characteristics:
1. Testifies to the maker’s faith in Jesus.
2. Recognizes divine ownership and responds accordingly.
3. Seeks to perpetuate the influence of the maker.
Evangelism is the lifeblood of the Christian faith. Let’s remember to share the Gospel with those closest to us—our loved ones.
Here are some benefits to consider in investing for eternity:
Nothing is more gratifying than knowing that you have lived a life well spent to the glory of God and that your legacy to future generations is exemplified by your giving to continue spreading the Gospel and the salvation of souls.
Not only is your participation today a testimony to your family, but what separates the planned giving opportunity of Love Worth Finding Ministries from others is that you are also teaching a compassionate lesson of giving to future generations. You are telling the world what is most important to you by making your resources available now to the glory of God and also for years to come. You may even wish to establish certain funds that allow you to designate your loved ones as directors of the fund after your death, thereby teaching them a heritage of God’s love.
Immediate Financial Rewards
Not every decision we make in life is certain, but through trusted advisors we endeavor to create a stable income for the future for our loved ones and ourselves. Through the Love Worth Finding opportunity, you may choose to participate in certain trusts, which can provide a substantial regular income for the rest of your life, with the balance being distributed to Love Worth Finding.
Peace of Mind
Not only can you know that you and your family are taken care of financially, but you can also rest assured that your planned giving contribution is managed prudently by skilled and experienced financial advisors and is supporting ministries such as Love Worth Finding.
There are seemingly countless avenues you may venture down to achieve your financial investment goals, and Love Worth Finding wants to make sure you have every opportunity to realize those dreams. For instance, as you investigate your options, you may discover that with several funds you may qualify for a tax deduction prior to the time your money is invested. Your participation may also provide a legal circumvention of certain capital gain taxes or highly appreciated properties such as stocks, real estate, or other investments.
Love Worth Finding wants to help you plan for your future with immediate tax advantages, increase your retirement security, help you teach your family how to leave a legacy, and give you the opportunity to build God’s kingdom for generations to come.
Is God’s Will In Your Will?
It has been said that seven out of ten people do not have a will. Why? Often it is because they think that their assets do not merit a will. If you own anything, a will is highly advisable. Your assets may be more valuable than you realize when you consider cash, real estate, jewelry, furniture, books, family heirlooms, works of art, and more.
Also, if you do not have a will, the laws of your state will determine the distribution of your assets. And as most of us know, the government will not personally manage our assets to respect our interests and wishes. Only a personal will gives you the opportunity to have your wishes respected after you are gone.
Where To Begin
Talk to God. Find out what moves the heart of God. Ask Him what He wants you to do about sharing His message of salvation to this generation, and for future generations.
Talk to your family. Discuss your financial goals with your spouse and your loved ones.
Talk to your financial advisor or accountant about the avenues discussed in planned giving opportunities, such as this one with Love Worth Finding Ministries.
Ask yourself the following:
- Do I have a current will?
- Is God’s will in my will?
- Am I retired or considering retirement?
- Do I need a supplemental income for life?
- Am I teaching my loved ones how to leave a legacy?
- Do I need an immediate tax deduction?
- Am I comfortable with the government receiving and directing the proceeds of my estate?
- Do I have any appreciated property (land, stocks, insurance)?
- Have I considered collectibles, antiques, and jewelry as part of my appreciated assets?
- Do I have an IRA and would it give my loved ones the best tax advantage upon my death?
