2. Crime does pay.
Yes, that is not a typo. Technically, crime does pay. In all likelihood, many white collar criminals got a large deposit into their bank accounts today. Many drug dealers bought a nice new toy that they likely will enjoy for at least a couple more months. Some of the people we see on television, video, or even at our jobs are breaking the rules and maybe even the law in order to get the things they have. And despite all the adages and catchy expressions, we have to warn people of a life of crime; in reality, crimes does pay...for a little while. Then you have to pay it back. 1 Timothy 5:24 states, "some people’s sins are evident, going before them to judgement, but sins of others follow them". Some seem to get away with more, longer, but don’t let the delay of their consequence entice you to join them.
