Which Son would have pleased you?

Jesus questioned the chief priests and elders,

“But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, ‘Son, go, work today in my vineyard.’ He answered and said, ‘I will not,’ but afterward he regretted it and went. Then he came to the second and said likewise. And he answered and said, ‘I go, sir,’ but he did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father?” (Matthew 21:28-31a). 

How would you answer the final question of Jesus? If you had been the father in the parable, which son would have pleased you?  Which son are you before our Heavenly Father?
