Avoid Inheritance Traps
Friends and neighbors marveled at the love and unity of a certain family, but then everything changed when the father died and left a sizable inheritance. Coalitions were formed, accusations were made, arguments erupted, bitterness developed, and thick walls were erected! Unfortunately, this tragedy is not unique and occurs in many families when greed is involved.
“For the love [or coveting] of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows” (I Timothy 6:10).
