Treasures gained by wickedness do not profit, but righteousness delivers from death.
Wealth, especially wealth gotten through greedy and wicked means, proves to be of no lasting value. This dishonest wealth rots the heart of the one who gets it and it cannot save us from our ultimate demise.
Righteousness, however, is a far more precious treasure. This righteousness of the Eternal God, this gift given to us by grace through faith, is greater than the limits of our mortality and powerful enough to buy our soul from death.
Holy and Righteous God, please make me righteous in your sight. Let my greatest legacy be my righteous character, not my status, achievement, or wealth. Allow me to be a blessing and an influence even after I am gone. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
