Tear a paper heart in half. Explain that sometimes we get a broken heart because we do something wrong. Tear it again and explain that sometimes we do everything right, but someone else does something wrong and because of their sin, we get a broken heart. Fold the torn pieces together and ask your audience how they would fix your paper heart. Then explain that God doesn’t need tape or staples or even duct tape, to put the pieces of a broken heart back together again. Unfold the pieces to show a new and restored heart.
This illusion contains enough hearts for 12 presentations, plenty for practice and for sharing.
