    I’m very happy someone too has something to say concerning this nonchalant attitude. I get pissed off when I see friends and sometimes relatives chat or write that way. One day, I asked a friend who has a habit of chatting in abbreviations why he writes that way and I was shocked by his response, his excuse was no time, I was really short of words not like I didn’t have anything to  say, but the level of ignorance got me dumbfounded for a while.

    I wonder if he doesn’t realise this could affect his vocabulary development for both speaking and writing. It makes one forget the spelling of words in English, even easy words like “his” “are”, lol, how funny. And he said no time, I really don’t know where this young man and his other colleagues are rushing to, is there any reward for actually being the first to type a sentence. I’m not condemning abbreviations, they are words abbreviated from the very beginning, eg USA which we know is an abbreviation for united state of america,but common now, lets leave this words the way they are, also, there are times when abbreviation s are needed, eg jotting while receiving lectures, it’s a smart move. But what I don’t still get is the abbreviation of simple English while chatting, if you say there’s no time, then don’t bother writing or chatting at all.

    I really love this topic ehn because this thing weak me shah

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>I totally agree with you that there are many institute created for ICT purposes and many erect them for monetary purposes. But I believe in doing things the other way round, others might be interested only in the money gotten from it which isn’t bad, but mine is for the passion of helping my fellow humans especially those who aren’t financially stable but really wants to develop himself ICT related and how do I intend doing this? By making it free and accessible for all. Seeing smiles alone to me from this individuals is better than the profits in terms of money made. Please don’t be offended I didn’t compliment on Mr femi’s idea, we all made brilliant and creative ideas and all I pray is for God to make them possible, they are really life changing. Thanks</p>

    Even Jesus Christ while on earth taught on this, in the book of Matthew 7:3, He said “why focus on the speck in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the log in your eye. This simply means there’s no point judging or criticising others when you’re no better.

    This teaching implies in our daily live, sometimes people love to judge and despise others, they love pock nosing in affairs that do not in anyway concern them whereas their lives are living hell. They wait for the slightest mistake one makes so they could pounce and spread false rumours against you, pure evidence of joblessness. The time spent on judging and criticizing could be beneficial if one used it work on his flaws, better still work fully on himself because no one is perfect, and no one came to live life to please anyone. Instead of judging, calm advises and correction could be better in order for peace to reign voluminously

    Yes they definitely can. If a student performs excellently from the beginning to the end of his academical journey, getting a good Job is not a problem for him, but it hurts when we see bright stars in very unfortunate state, at a particular point, the government could be blamed, but when he or she still stay in that same position for numerous years, then all blame should be on him, you don’t expect silver and gold to knock at your door.

    In conclusion the government are in better positions to  help reduce the rate of unemployment, crime etc in her country, but we shouldn’t put our hope, fate and destiny in them. We should put on our hardworking shoes and help ourselves to succeeded by involving in lucrative and legal works after all heaven help those who are willing to help themselves.

    A very interesting topic by the way

    Opening an ICT institute, the world we live today is ICT inclined so we need to adjust, to learn at least the basics in computer, phones other ICT gadgets and the best way to know this is being educated in centres meant for ICT purposes. So I feel opening this institutes could go a long way in helping people especially those who has zero experience in operating ICT devices thereby helping man kind in a little but significant way

    Y’all are absolutely right, time invested on watching this show if used well on gaining knowledge, and doing something profitable could better our life in one way or other. Especially on teenagers and youth, a child of ten can explain what happened in a particular episode but finds it had to understand or explain a topic in his textbooks

    Giving up social media, lol, quite an impossible resolution. To an extent, keeping Facebook, twitter, WhatsApp etc aside for a while is a brilliant one most especially for student, but dropping it permanently, quite impossible. Social medias give us varieties of opportunities and informations that are very vital. Take for instance, if I wasn’t on Facebook, I won’t come across this great platform which would have been a big loss on my own part. So is not so bad we can’t carrying social media over yearly you know… Interesting topic brother

      <li style=”text-align: left;”>Sometimes this climate change are caused by us. Lagos a city known for its busy, industrious and over populated status becomes hotter and hotter everyday. Pollutions from factories, air pollution (carbon monoxide) from cars and generator, water pollutions etc often cause the destruction of the ozone layer. The ozone layer is a kind of shield that protects us from direct contact of the sun. And when this ozone layer starts damaging gradually, it makes the environment very unbearable for us to carry out our daily activities very well. So I think of we can try and reduce the rate of pollution in our environment, it will be a conducive and beautiful place to live in

      <li style=”text-align: left;”>Nature is a big blessings to us. Its cheap, mostly free(eg the air we breathe) and very essential. But its a pity that we sometimes over look it and forget the importance of natural products health wise. Garlic for example was a crop I saw as ‘ordinary’. I sometimes regard it very useless because of its smell, little did I know the magic behind it, as little as the garlic is,garlic has been used to treat bronchitis, hypertension (high blood pressure), TB (tuberculosis), liver disorders, dysentery, flatulence, colic, intestinal worms, rheumatism, diabetes, and fevers. The good thing about this natural products is the fact that they are very affordable and work even more effective than the drugs we spend thousands on. So we shouldn’t over look nature. It has a lot to offer us if we are willing to realise and make proper use of it.

    It depends on the reasons for the relationship. If you’re in a relationship for sex alone, it’s going no where. A relationship should be built in true love, patience and commitment, then sex can come when the time is right

    Everything that happens in life has a particular reason and purpose. It might occur according to our plans and most time, it goes contrary to it. We are happy when it goes well according to our plan, and when it seems not to, we ask WHY.

    When I was a little boy, I always asked myself why I was born in Nigeria, why not on beautiful countries like the USA, england, Germany etc, little did I know there was a reason for my existence as a Nigerian. My country might not be the best place in the world, but it has taught me a lot of things which I’m not sure I’ll learn in any other country. So instead of wasting time on asking why, we should learn to move on and take life the way it is, in every experience we come across, we should learn something from it

    Nice one, this are things we Nigerians should be doing most of the time. We need this calculations in other to sustain us properly. They might say we’re stingy or we are too cautious in terms of money, but, men they ain’t making the money for us. But if we want to spend more, we should try to be more hard working. Thank you

  • in reply to: Tithe 10% #5666

    Ikenna
    Participant

    Despite the fact that many people use the word “tithe” synonymously with any church-related giving, the word tithe literally means “tenth.”

    The tithe was an obligatory offering from the law of Moses requiring 10 percent of an Israelite’s firstfruits. Because God provided the harvest, this first part was returned to him. It was a reminder to Israel that all things we have are his. It was a show of thankfulness for his provision. It also provided for the Levitical priesthood, festivals, and the needy. But tithes should be done once in a month, the fact that some pastors request tithes every week of the month is what I don’t still get. Thank you

    The mind is an essential part of a human system which needs to be guided and run positively. What ever character one display is as a result of the content of his mind. This is an insightful piece
