5 Minutes a day / 5 Days a week

with God

Mark 11:11

And Jesus went into Jerusalem and into the temple. So when He had looked around at all things, as the hour was already late, He went out to Bethany with the twelve.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.

No, this is not a mistake or some sort of computer code that you just read, this is what we are told to do when we get angry, count to 10.

In today's devotional verse we read of Jesus going into the temple and notice it says that: He had looked around at all things.

If you continue to read the rest of the verses after this, we read of Jesus returning the next day and cleansing the temple.
So why didn't Jesus do it right then and there? I believe to keep from sinning and to pray about what He just saw in His Father's house.

Counting to ten is good, but it's better to pray.
When you pray your anger gets less and less especially when you pray for the one(s) you are angry with.

So next time you are about to blow up in anger, count to ten, then pray!
