“Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other.” Psalm 85:10
Some things just go together, don’t they? Peanut butter and jelly, green eggs and ham, cake and ice cream. The list goes on—and includes much beyond the realm of food, by the way.
As I read the verse above not long ago, I noticed some qualities that were joined together, partnered like perfect pairs. Love and faithfulness, righteousness and peace. One giving rise to the other.
Where love reigns, we’ll also find faithfulness. When righteousness shines forth, peace will be nearby. Isn’t it wonderful how other blessings will be ours when we love and live rightly as the Lord instructs? May we each one see these perfect pairs shining in our lives!
“. . . shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life . . . “ Philippians 2:15b-16a
*Can you think of other qualities where one gives rise to the other?
