Bible Craft: David Man after God’s own heart

God looks at your heart

We read about when Samuel came to choose the new king.  Samuel kept looking at the older brothers and thinking, “Now that looks like a king,”

 

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”  1 Samuel 16:7

 

drawing what's in our heartsSo, we talked about what things are important in our hearts.  Which of course led to drawing our hearts.  I wanted it to be this multi-sensory use lots of different coloring sources…….  Yeah, not so much.

 

They enjoyed it though, and that’s what matters.

If you look into their hearts and what they drew, you can see, what’s in their hearts.  Family, friends, animals.  (kids in order: Batman, Superman, Princess)

 

It made me happy to see the values I’ve been pouring into them reflected back.
