Proverbs 3:16-17 New International Version (NIV)
16 Long life is in her right hand;
in her left hand are riches and honor.
17 Her ways are pleasant ways,
and all her paths are peace.
These statements are general principles. In a perfect world, wise decisions would always lead to benefits. Even in our troubled world, wise decisions do lead to many blessings. But, sometimes sin will delay these blessing until Jesus establishes his eternal Kingdom. Live by believing and not seeing and know that wisdom will ultimately lead to blessing.
