In all my reading and studying about peace this month, I have definitely noticed a correlation between righteousness and peace. Several verses point to it, but none quite as clearly and directly as Isaiah 32:17 :
“And the effect of righteousness will be peace, and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust forever.” Isaiah 32:17
The effect of righteousness is peace. The result of righteousness is quietness and trust.
You can’t get much clearer than that.
And I can’t really think of any more words to add, so I think I’ll just let this verse speak for itself today. 🙂
