Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. (Revelation 2:10 NRSV)

Permit me to do a little prying. It's for your own benefit. How many of you have made a will? Many family squabbles have erupted over the lack of a well-thought out will. There is a book titled THE 400-WORD WILL. It contains some interesting wills from Japan. Listen to one of them. I quote:

"After you finish a simple funeral," wrote Mitsuyo Honda, 43, housewife, "I would like you to grab a handful of ashes and get on a bullet train . . . When you arrive in Tokyo, take a cab and get off at Ginza (in central Tokyo), then find a coffee shop and take a break . . . Then find a nice tree along the street, and quietly cast my ashes at its root."

It is important that we have a will, and I hope you will include your church. Remember we come into this world with nothing and we leave this world with nothing. But, even the way our assets are distributed after our death will say a lot about who fills our soul.

Dear God, thank you for all that you have entrusted to me. May my will be a thank you to your kingdom. In Jesus' name, Amen.
