Let’s face it, fellow counselors, if we don’t help people get to the heart of their behavior we have done nothing more than rearrange the order of their functional gods or taught them to hang a new variety of plastic fruit on the tree of their life. So, how do we get to the heart?
Below are two examples I sent to another counselor yesterday after he asked me for help in guiding his counselees to move from fruit to root. These make good exercises for us “counselors” too…and a small group discussion idea. Remember the more you counsel yourself with God’s Word (that’s what it means to meditate on the Word) the more you will be effective at counseling one another.
Example 1: What is the condition of my heart?
Read and meditate on Matthew 5-7 three times this week. In your journal/notebook answer these questions:
Example 2: What does conflict reveal about my heart?
Read and meditate on James 4:1-10 three times this week. In your notebook, answer the following questions.
