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?

One thought on “I Learned it, But I Do Not Want To Do It!

  1. Oh, TJ s sermon was probably better and more practical then the one you heard in church! No insult to the pastor… but, kids really say it all

    love ya, and wish you could have “swung by” NJ
