As seasons change in our lives, we face a number of decisions – sometimes based on our own timing, and other times because of circumstances outside of our control.
I have met a few people who always seem to have the ability to see the future and make decisions before those decisions are thrust upon them. This might be as simple as buying a new car at the right time, downsizing, simplifying their lifestyles or other decisions like that. I admire how they take a proactive rather than a reactive approach to life.
I encourage you to consider what decisions need to be made in your life to prepare wisely for your future. Proverbs tells us, “The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty.” (Proverbs 27:12, NIV)
While making some difficult decisions takes intentionality and courage, preparation can be freeing once you no longer have the burden of “what if” hanging over your head.
Here at Barnabas Foundation, we are honored to help people consider plans that will honor God, care for their families and support the causes close to their hearts. If it’s time to be proactive with your estate plan, one of our planners would be happy to help you.
