Blessed must be the peacemakers, they experience only temporary success yet their efforts continue in hope as evidence of things not seen. Peace is the strong cord running through history. Peace ties together every chapter of every book of the Bible. Peace is the subject of every sermon and hymn and is the cause of every war. Peace is so powerful even God works under its influence. Who understands that? Peace will bring this world to its end.
