A tax assessor came one day to a poor 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: “First, I have everlasting life, John 3:16, Second, I have a mansion in heaven, John 14:2, Third, I have peace that passes all understanding, Philippians 4:7, Fourth, I have joy unspeakable, 1 Peter 1:8, Fifth, I have divine love which never fails, 1 Corinthians 13:8, Sixth, I have a faithful wife, Proverbs 31:10, Seventh, I have healthy, happy obedient children, Exodus 20:12, Eighth, I have true, loyal friends, Proverbs 18:24, Ninth, I have songs in the night, Psalms 42:8, Tenth, 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.”
