Un-taxable Wealth
 
A tax assessor came one day to a poor preacher to determine the amount of taxes 
the preacher 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 preacher.
 
"List your possessions, please," the assessor instructed.
 
The preacher 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, 1Corinthians 13:8
Sixth, I have a faithful, pious 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."
 
I pray that all of us will have this kind of tax free "wealth."
 
Have a richly blessed day!
