When Righteousness and Peace Kiss

Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. (Ps. 85.10)

Ralph Venning, A Spiritual Garden of Sweet-Smelling Flowers, or Mr. Ralph Venning's Divine Sentences:

The Kiss of Justice, is to love our Enemies, to forsake our Parents and Possessions for the love of God; to endure with Patience injuries inflicted, and in all places to flie from honours that are offered.

The Kiss of Peace, is to invite Foes to friendship, peaceably to sustain Adversaries, lovingly to instruct such as do amiss, meekly to comfort those that mourn, and to be at amity with all men.
