This lesson is on that every parent would LOVE their kids to master, to obey without whining! Right? Just as we want our children to obey us quickly and with a good attitude, the Lord wants his children, you and me, to trust Him, obey him, and have a heart turned to Him. We hope this week's lesson will bless your family as you strive to teach about obedience.

You will need a towel or small blanket for each child!

➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N

Give a towel to each person who is present, and give everyone a space on the floor where they can lay the towel flat. Explain that you are going to give them a challenge, but the real contest is to see who can be the most whiny while they complete the challenge! Encourage everyone to be whiny with their voices, whiny with their faces, and whiny with their arms and body language!

Tell them that the challenge is to fold the towel. Remind everyone to be as whiny as possible and to complain, moan, murmur, etc. while they are folding the towels).

Once you have completed the activity, collect the towels and discuss the following questions.

1) Was it easy to fold the towel when you were being whiny? (Hopefully they obeyed quickly!)

2) How did the towels turn out? Were they folded neatly? (Discuss.)

3) How did it feel to be whiny? If we chose to whine all the time, do you think things would be easier or more difficult? (Discuss.)
