Why Is Estate Planning Important?

Estate planning is a great and necessary act of stewardship. Whatever your stage in life, you are responsible to determine how, when and to whom to transfer everything that has been entrusted to you.  Sadly, a vast majority of individuals die without having prepared a valid estate plan. Federal tax incentives make it beneficial for personal wishes to be known and followed. In addition, a careful plan often minimizes estate settlement costs.

Estate plans:

  • Are a tangible acceptance of God's plan for stewardship,
  • Transfer assets to individuals and charitable beneficiaries, and
  • Settle your estate in a tax-efficient manner with minimal heartache, cost and delay.

Avoiding estate planning?

Some people perceive that legal documents might be difficult to understand. However, compared to trying to settle an estate without a plan, a well-defined estate plan is easy to understand!  Additionally, many people don’t understand that God expects stewardship.  Consider Proverbs 3:9: "Honor the LORD with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase.”  Additionally, day-to-day routines and the busyness of life leave some feeling “too busy" to develop an estate plan, and others don’t want to think about death.  Whatever the reasons for procrastinating, none lessen the devastating impact of the lack of an estate plan on the family members left behind!
