A Christian’s Heavenly Wealth

By P Chong

Heavenly Money

Here’s a story worth sharing & spreading especially in times like this when mankind is lost in the world of GREED & WORLDLY OBSESSIONS.

A tax officer 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 a perfect conscience & 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.” 
I pray that all of us will have this kind of tax free “wealth.”

This is what it means to be rich . . . 
Rich with the blessings of our Almighty God. 
Blessed be His name forever. Amen!

Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income, This too is meaningless.” ~ Ecc. 5 :10

Man is a mere phantom as he goes to & fro: he bustles about, but only in vain; he heaps up wealth, not knowing who will get it.” ~ Psalm 39:6

Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firsdtfruits of all your crops.” ~ Proverbs 3:9
