TRUE RICHES

A tax assessor came one day to a poor minister of the gospel to determine the amount of taxes he would have to pay. “What do you possess?” he questioned.

“Oh, I am very wealthy,” replied the minister. “List your possessions, please,” the assessor instructed.

The man of God replied:

First, I have everlasting life - John 3:16.
Second, I have a mansion in Heaven - John 14:2.

Thirdly, I have peace that passeth understanding - Philippians 4:7.
Fourth, I have joy unspeakable - 1 Peter 1:8.
Fifth, I have divine love that never faileth - 1 Corinthians 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 - Psalm 42:8.
Tenth, I have a crown of life awaiting - James 1:12.

The tax collector closed his book and said, “Truly, you are a very rich man, but your property is not subject to taxation.”
