A tax assessor came one day to a certain Christian to determine the amount of taxes he would have to pay. The following conversation took place:
"What property do you possess?" asked the assessor.
"I am a very wealthy man," replied the Christian.
"List your possessions, please," the assessor instructed.
The Christian said: "1, I have everlasting life, John 3:16
2, I have a mansion in heaven, John 14:2
3, I have peace that passes allunderstanding, Philippians 4:7
4, I have joy unspeakable, 1 Peter 1:8
5, I have divine love which never fails, 1 Corinthians 13:8
6, I have a faithful wife, Proverbs 31:10
7, I have healthy, happy obedient children, Exodus 20:12
8, I have true, loyal friends, Proverbs 18:24
9, I have songs in the night, Psalms 42:8
10, I have a crown of life, James 1:12"
The tax assessor closed his book, and said, "Truly you are a very rich man, but your property is not subject to taxation."
I pray that all of us will have this kind of tax free "wealth."
Have a richly blessed day!
