Scripture: Proverbs 11:1-4

A false balance is abomination to the Lord: but a just weight is his delight.
When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.
Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.

Those who ask a fair price for what they sell or a fair wage for their work are living according to the law of God.  Those who cheat, or demand more than their goods or services are worth are not.  Pride and egotism causes some to believe they are worth far more than others, such as professional athletes getting five-year contracts for sixty million, but God tells us it is the meek, the humble who will inherit the kingdom.  Not an earthly kingdom, but His eternal kingdom.  And in the end times, it is the righteous who will be saved, not the famous and the greedy.
