    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 friend 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. "
