LCMS Foundation Gift Planning

All assets within your estate are God’s gifts which you will be gifting to family and ministry when the Lord calls you home. It is good to learn how to pray for those who will be receiving these gifts. As God’s people age, sometimes the challenge of managing God’s gifts seems too complex, and the servant of the Lord may say, “Oh, I don’t want to be bothered with planning things out. I will just leave it and others will figure it out after I’m gone.” God made you the steward of His gifts. He wants to include you in the showering of others with His blessings, including physical needs but also spiritual blessings that come through the sharing of the Gospel. Engage in specific plans to bless specific people or ministries. Then remember them by name in your prayers as you prepare for the day you meet the Lord face to face.  Your LCMS Foundation Gift Planning Counselor can help you articulate these purposes.
