Tax Assessor

 
  Tax Assessor
 

droplets on a pine tree at our house
 

A tax assessor came one day to a poor pastor to determine the amount of taxes the pastor 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 minister. 

"List your possessions, please," the assessor instructed. 

"First, I have everlasting life (John 3:16). 
Second, I have a mansion in heaven (John 14:2). 
Third, I have peace that passeth understanding (Philippians 4:7). 
Fourth, I have joy unspeakable (1 Peter 1:8). 
Fifth, I have divine love which never faileth (1 Corinthians 13:8). 
Sixth, I have a faithful, precious 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 wealth is not subject to taxation."
