So, I was reading the daily entry from Proverbs the other day and I came across this verse, Proverbs 10:16, in the ESV:
"The wage of the righteous leads to life, the gain of the wicked to sin."
My brain of course has to analyze it from a tax perspective. The righteous receive a wage and the wicked get a gain. Normally, when you hear those terms in Tax World, a wage is ordinary income & a gain refers to capital gain.
But wait! Ordinary income is taxed at a higher rate than capital gain! How does that work? How is it that the righteous get taxed more than the wicked!?!
I guess this is further evidence that God did not write the tax code.
