We would be wise to be righteous than to be wicked. To be righteous is to succeed in passing the test of time of this lifetime to inherit everlasting life and peace (Matthew 25:31–34); to be wicked is to lose the time of this life and to be condemned to everlasting death and punishment (Matthew 25:41, 46).

“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise” (Proverbs 11:30). “And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever” (Daniel 12:3).
“Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore” (Psalm113:2).
