Training & Correcting the Heart with Scripture


One of the most important things we can do for our children is to teach them God’s Word. Correcting and training with Scripture gives us many opportunities to get God’s Word in their hearts and minds. Our goal as we correct, should be not to change their behavior, but to change their heart. This book is designed to make it simple for parents to use God’s Word for reproof, correction, and training in righteousness. Included is a Bible study of 21 character qualities, including the Bible commands concerning it, the negative consequences of it, and the positive consequences of following God’s way instead.


(For example: anger vs. self-control) A suggested memory verse is also given for each of the 21 studies. These can be used as needed when situations arise, or just used as a character building study to help them get God’s Word in their heart and mind. (Rather than scolding or getting frustrated, take them through the studies that relate to that behavior.) There is also a Topical List of Behaviors and Applicable Bible Verses for 17 behaviors we often deal with when raising our children. This can be used as a quick reference tool for correction – look up the behavior, and show them what God says about it. (References only are given, so you or your child can look them up in the version of your choice.) The final section is a study that compares the foolish person to the wise person.

God’s Word relates in a practical way to our kids’ lives, and is the best tool for reaching their heart. This is an excellent resource that will easily enable parents to use God’s Word for correction and training throughout each day, and make the most of those training/correcting opportunities when they arise!
