Patient In Life

He came home from work, tired. He sat down on the sofa and put his feet up. His wife brought him a glass of water. His son gave him a sheet of paper and he read through:

English              17%
Biology               35%
Mathematics     40%
Physics              37%
Chemistry          42%
Economics         12%
Agriculture.        19%
Geography          22%

Suddenly, he lost his temper and  started shouting: "What is this? All the time you are on phone and TV! How dare you bring me such marks? How dare you?"

His wife said: "Be patient. Listen...." But he interjected,"Shut up! It's your love and pampering that has spoilt him. He is no good and never serious at all!"

His Wife said: "Oh,really?"
He shouted: "No one in our family has performed so badly,ever!"

The son said: "Dad, I am sorry I made you angry. I was cleaning the old cupboard and I found this. It is your old school report card, dated 27th July, 1980 sir."

 Imagine the atmosphere afterwards. Calmness in the air. With a foolish grin on his face,he replied, "Son,you don't know. Those days food was scarce."

MORAL LESSON OF THE STORY
James 1:19 "So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger."
