Proverbs 13:6 says, Righteousness guards the person of integrity, but wickedness overthrows the sinner (NIV). The Easy to Read Version says, Goodness protects honest people, but evil destroys those who love to sin. Basically this means that God will look after people who love Jesus and try to live right. People who love sin will be dragged further down the path of sin. A sin that seems small, can lead to bigger sin (note: it's important to remember that God doesn't grade sin, it's all equal). This doesn't mean that nothing bad will happen to righteous or good people. I think it means that they won't get dragged down a sinful path if they are loving Jesus and trying to live by his Word. The Enduring Word Commentary says, deeds can reflect destiny. Small sins can lead to bigger ones.
