Children painted tiles to express condolences when the federal building in Oklahoma City was bombed in 1995. The tiles are displayed outside the memorial museum now.


Proverbs 3:3-8 , ERV (Easy to Read Version)

“Don’t ever let love and loyalty leave you. Tie them around your neck, and write them on your heart.

 Then God will be pleased and think well of you and so will everyone else.

 Trust the Lord completely, and don’t depend on your own knowledge.

 With every step you take, think about what he wants, and he will help you go the right way.

 Don’t trust in your own wisdom, but fear and respect the Lord and stay away from evil.

 If you do this, it will be like a refreshing drink and medicine for your body.”



Proverbs is perhaps the most practical book in the Bible. These words of wisdom grew out of the common experiences of human life.

The teachers of ancient times were eager to share what they had learned about life. Their insights helped them in their daily living and their relationships.

The reward of wisdom is a better and happier life.”

Spiritual Formation Bible, published by Zondervan
