Hebrews 11:25 "Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;"
People can find pleasure in sin for a season but the pleasure ends sooner rather than later. Just like with Adam and Eve, death did not come the moment they ate the fruit but rather they began to die on that day. Some people receive the wages of sin earlier than others, but it is an inevitable fact of life that we all will die someday unless we are ready at the time of the Rapture.
Hebrews 9:27 "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement:"
I think I will end with talking about Egypt. I'm currently listening to The Prince of Egypt soundtrack and I am reminded of how Egypt was an amazing nation but it was swiftly humbled under the mighty hand of God. It is highly likely that the people of the nation doubted that their country would ever see ruin. However, there came a day when God brought judgement upon Egypt due to their sins against the Children of Israel. God also used His power of judgement to free the Children of Israel from bondage because their cries moved His heart.
The simple fact of the matter is that God's standard of righteousness is perfect, and nothing less. Are you perfectly righteous? Probably not. However, I know this Man named Jesus who is perfect. You might want to ask Him for help if you are lacking in the righteousness department. ;)
"Sin will take you farther than you want to go, make you stay longer than you want to stay, and make you pay more than you want to pay."
