The Heart Chart
When discipling children, it is crucial to get to the heart - the heart of behavior, attitudes, thoughts, and feelings. The Heart Chart is a simple tool to help young children walk through their behavior and see what God's Word says about it.
“Keep your heart with all vigilance,
for from it flow the springs of life.”
- Proverbs 4:23, ESV
The purpose of The Heart Chart is to help children see the connection between their behavior and what is going on in their heart. If they can learn to evaluate what sin is in their heart, and what God’s Word says about it, then they can begin to learn to control their emotions and behavior. With the help of the chart you will first discuss what happened; second what they were feeling; third, whether or not what they did with that feeling was right or wrong in God’s eyes; fourth, determine what sin was controlling their heart at that moment (using the verses on the back of the chart); fifth, make a plan of what God would want them to do instead the next time. The chart comes with two different design options (both included in download). $2.99
