Proverbs 11:30

The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

A righteous life is like a fruit-bearing tree that beings nourishment and refreshment to others. If we want to be wise, we will win others to a life of righteousness. We are to understand that we have been given the privilege to be used by God in doing a work in human lives that will result in eternal blessing.

Proverbs 11:29

He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind: and the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart.

If the theme is consistent that Solomon has written, the one who is greedy of gain is the one who troubles their own house. When they lose sight of the worthwhile values of life in their quest for wealth, they will end up with nothing tangible to satisfy their greed. Their penalty for playing the fool will be servitude to an individual who acts more wisely.
