Proverbs 13:21 says, Trouble chases sinners wherever they go, but good things happen to good people. The book of Proverbs has a lot of verses about God blessing righteous people, that is, people who do right.
The Lord curses a wicked family, but he blesses the homes of those who live right.
The wages of the righteous is life, but the earnings of the wicked are sin and death.
The righteous get what they want, but the wicked will get what they fear most.
The righteous person is rescued from trouble, and it falls on the wicked instead.
I could go on, but you get the idea. This doesn't mean that bad things don't happen to good people - that's part of living in a broken world. Romans 8:28 says, 'we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.' Paul is saying that God redeems the bad stuff and uses it for good with the people who love him.
