Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, but righteousness delivers from death. (Proverbs 10:2)
People may become rich by stealing, extortion and forgery and enjoy the temporary luxuries of this world, but judgment hangs upon their heads and eventually they inherit the wages of their wickedness and that is eternal damnation in hell and the lake of fire. The righteous are often persecuted in this world and many are killed because they hold fast to righteousness, but they inherit eternal life in heaven after their life on earth. So keep yourself from the treasures of wickedness for it profits nothing but pursue righteousness which will deliver you from eternal death.
