  •  Have you ever asked yourself the “what if” questions? What if something should happen to me today? What if something should happen to my spouse or business partner? What if I have an accident that leaves me incapacitated? 

    No one likes to think about these questions. However, the answers are very important to your surviving family members. Taking the time to answer those questions can provide peace of mind. It also can mean that your wishes for asset distribution following death will be followed. 

  •  If a Christian does wrong, it is good that he feels guilty for it shows the Holy Spirit is at work in his life. Jesus said of the Holy Spirit, “… he will convict the world of its sin.”(John 16:8).

    Guilt plays a big part in confession. When the prophet Nathan confronted King David about his sin, the king confessed to Nathan, "I have sinned against the Lord" (II Samuel 12:13). Guilt is like a warning light on the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong.

    When God shows us our wrong, how do we handle the guilt?
