I Learned it, But I Do Not Want To Do It!

It has been some time since I wrote and hope to get things going soon. I want to share something with you now though.

For two weeks I was visiting my children and grandchildren. I had not seen them since last January and this was a much wanted and needed trip.  I will post more of that later and/or on this blog or my other one.

Something happened up there, well lots happened, but something very appropriate for a Sunday post.

Coming home from church one grandchild very quickly told me what he learned that day in Sunday School, here is the jist of the conversation:

TJ, very excited about learning this:  I learned what obey means!

Grammie (me): OH? What did you learn?

TJ: I learned “obey your parents”

Grammie: And what does that mean?

TJ: It means if they say go to bed, then I need to go to bed.

Grammie: What else does it mean?

TJ: If they say pick up my toys, then I need to do it.

Grammie: Sounds like you listened well.

TJ: Yup, what they tell me to do, I need to do.

Grammie: Very good TJ.

about 5 minutes later

Mommy:  TJ go put your coat away:

TJ: nothing, runs off

Mommy: TJ, I SAID GO PUT YOUR COAT AWAY

TJ: ignores and continues what he is doing

Mommy: handles it and Tj does it

about 15 minutes later

repeated, but not with coat

Sometime later:

another repeat, then

Grammie: TJ I thought you learned to obey in Sunday School today, what happened?

TJ: I LEARNED IT BUT I DO NOT WANT TO DO IT!!!

Makes me wonder, how many times do we do that to our Heavenly Father?
