Respect or Rudeness and Disrespect

Jesus in the Garden; Two Thieves on the crosses


Verse Leaders for Chapel:

May 16th - 

Sadie Weeks


Memory Verse: 

Proverbs 3:1-15 

My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, 

For length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. 

Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you;

   bind them around your neck;

 write them on the tablet of your heart.

So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.

In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

7 Be not wise in your own eyes;

fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.

It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.

Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the first fruits of all your produce;

then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.

My son, do not despise the Lord's discipline or be weary of his reproof,

for the Lord reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights.

Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding,

for the gain from her is better than gain from silver

and her profit better than gold.

She is more precious than jewels,

and nothing you desire can compare with her.
