This Is Your Brain on Taxes, Part 3

So, I was reading the daily entry from Proverbs the other day and I came across this verse, Proverbs 10:16, in the ESV:

"The wage of the righteous leads to life, the gain of the wicked to sin."

My brain of course has to analyze it from a tax perspective. The righteous receive a wage and the wicked get a gain. Normally, when you hear those terms in Tax World, a wage is ordinary income & a gain refers to capital gain.

But wait! Ordinary income is taxed at a higher rate than capital gain! How does that work? How is it that the righteous get taxed more than the wicked!?!

Oh wait...

I guess this is further evidence that God did not write the tax code.

Interesting, but one thing I've been meaning to ask you...How did you come up with the Title of your Blog?

We need to "die to ourselves". But, that also happens to be what the tombstone in the picture says. I didn't photoshop that. That's what the thing actually said. It's in a graveyard in Groveland, MA where a lot of the Hardys settled.
