Kiss The Son~
On November 13, 2015 the “Eagles of Death Metal Band” was performing at Paris’ Le Bataclan and during their song “Kiss the Devil” three terrorists opened fire into the crowd of about 1,500. Eighty-nine people were killed in the attack at the venue. It really saddened me to learn the words spoken in that song and then I thought of the words spoken in Psalm 2 where it says we are to “Kiss The Son” and put our trust in HIM.

12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
The kiss in scripture is a symbol of various attitudes. In Luke 7:38 it is a sign of true worship. The poor woman who came into the house of Simon and stood behind Jesus did five things: She wept, she washed His feet with her tears, she wiped them with the hairs of her head, she anointed them with the ointment, and… she kissed His feet… The tears and kiss were a sign of true and holy worship.
