Count to TEN
Early in our marriage, my husband decided to begin a new
career and it required me to go back to work while he learned his new trade.
My parents had promised to care for our children while I
worked, and it was entertaining for them to be with Grandma and Grandpa during
My job search began first by using the newspaper Want
Ads.I found an interesting ad at an
automobile dealership.They needed
someone in their office to do bookkeeping.
The gentleman doing the interview said, “Quickly in your
head add these numbers; 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10.”I was always very good at math, and when I promptly gave him the correct
answer he shrugged it off by saying, “You probably already knew the answer.”
He ended the interview by telling me to go home and take
care of my small children as I might be too over qualified for this job.
I was disappointed, but kept looking for work.Soon, I was hired at a small business that

Counting to ten is an old fashioned method used to learn to
control your temper.By the time you get

and not be quick to loose our temper and carry it too far into destructive
Jesus was angry with the money changers in the temple.He was upset with their greed, and their
disrespect for God’s house.That day He
put on quite a vivid display of Righteous Anger.It is not a sin to be angry, but we are not
to hold on to anger over-night.
Ephesians 4:26Be ye
angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
that is soon angry deals foolishly:
Ecclesiastes7:9Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for
anger rests in the bosom of fools.
If you personally are having issues with anger - - Please
count slowly to TEN!
