God's Children Make Peace by Frank Pollard

GOD'S CHILDREN MAKE PEACE
MATTHEW 5:9
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED, WHO PERFORMS THE MOST NEEDED
TASKS IN THIS WORLD? WHO ARE THE WORLD'S MOST NECESSARY PEOPLE?
WHENEVER CEASAR COMPLEXES OR DRUM MAJOR,INSTINCTS INVADE
THIS PROUD SOUL, I QUICKLY ASK MYSELF: "IF ALL THE PREACHERS
