I’ve been thinking along the lines of hearts lately—quite possibly because of Valentine’s Day coming up.
But more than pink hearts or candy hearts, I’ve been thinking about my children’s hearts and how I want them to seek God with their whole hearts.
To be quite frank, we live in a culture that is increasingly hostile toward the Bible. Yet we as Christians know that “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge…” (Proverbs 1:7)
More than just teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic in our homeschooling, we must present the gospel to our children, teaching them of their need for salvation in Jesus Christ.
We should expose our children to the Word of God as much as we can, so they may gain wisdom and discernment and a love for the truth.
My kids are young, so we love to spend time together in our Bible storybooks. Here are our two current favorites:
I love how the Jesus Storybook Bible ties every story back to Jesus, and my kids love the illustrations.
2. 365 Read-Aloud Bedtime Bible Stories (ages 4-8)
We actually use this one during the day. I love how it doesn’t really water the stories down, but rather uses language that is age-appropriate and easy for my kids to understand.
Although these resources are important and have their place in our day, they still aren’t a replacement for the actual Bible.
I want my kids to be comfortable getting in the Word and learning scripture exactly how it is written.
A Bible study like this is one great way to do just that.
This free printable five-page study covers seven facets of the heart that are found in scripture:
An Overview of What Does the Bible Say About My Heart
- My heart is a reflection of my true self; my words and actions reveal my heart.
- The condition of my heart is important to God.
- Without God’s work in my heart, my heart is evil.
- Only through salvation in Jesus Christ can I have a pure heart. I must not harden my heart, but seek God with all my heart.
- I must love God, love others, and do good from the heart, not merely to look righteous from the outside or to please other people.
- My heart will be strong if I trust God and have faith in Him.
- My heart will be where my treasure is.
Each section includes verses to read and a question to answer or discuss about how the verses apply to us personally.
The study wraps up with a prayer.
What Age Child is This Study Suitable For?
This study would be suitable for a child ages 10 and up to work on independently (it’s great for the high school years too), or you can do the study together as a family during your homeschool morning time or for devotions.
Your younger children will still be able to learn from this study as you discuss the verses and questions together as a family.
You can really do as much or as little of this study in one sitting as you want.
My hope is that this study will be a bridgeway to important heart-to-heart conversations between you and your kids as they learn more of God’s Word.
