Crime Pays?

The Book of Job, Chapter 24, verse 24:

24 They are exalted for a little while, but are gone and brought low; they are taken out of the way as all other, and cut off as the tops of the ears of corn.
Criminals sometimes seem like they have a lot. We have seen the photos of drug lords houses and stacks of cash as big as a sofa. There are plenty of drug dealers with big Cadillac Escalades, and large diamond rings. There are lots of hit songs and music videos about how terrific it is to be a gangster and have all kinds of power and women.
They will eventually be brought low. They don't sleep well at night. They worry that any minute other criminals will kill them or the police will imprison them. They have no friends they can really count upon.
We do the work of God keeping our fellow man safe and secure in his life, home and property. We are the peacemakers, 'Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called sons of God;' that's what the SGT Says.
