In the way of righteousness there is life; along that path is immortality. – Proverbs 12:28
Some places where else this is discussed:
Prov. 3:2; 4:10; 11:24
The promise of a long life or one without sickness or poverty is often hard to believe. Yet the proverbs and psalms of the Bible don’t shy from it. In this proverb, righteousness is seen as the important path to follow, and with it comes life. The life lived in honour of God is also one with hope for the future, and not just for our earthly existence – to live forever in Heaven under the rule of God is our hope, too. Becoming right with God is a path that leads to so much good.
