One of the things we're trying to teach the boys is to obey immediately with a happy attitude as evidenced by a cheerful face. I don't know about you other parents, but I personally do not like to see a child who has a mad face while they do what their parents said. A happy heart will come out on the face, and I find that if we have the boys smile, their whole attitude changes.
Bam-Bam worked a long time this morning on saying "Yes, Mommy" with a smile instead of a frown.
Just as delayed obedience is no obedience, so is grudging obedience no obedience.
I hardly think it pleases the Lord when we serve with a hateful attitude or a frown on our face.
Neither does it make my heart glad when the boys grudgingly obey.
