Religion / Re: The Difference Between Abel's And Cain's Sacrifice by Toyinjones2020: 3:18pm On Oct 11, 2020
The Bible account of Cain and Abel making their offerings is very brief. At Genesis 4:3-5, we read: “It came about at the expiration of some time that Cain proceeded to bring some fruits of the ground as an offering to Jehovah. But as for Abel, he too brought some firstlings of his flock, even their fatty pieces. Now while Jehovah was looking with favor upon Abel and his offering, he did not look with any favor upon Cain and upon his offering.”

There is no mention in the Bible that prior to this event Jehovah had given any specific information about sacrifices or about what kind of sacrifices would be acceptable to him. Thus, Cain and Abel evidently made their offerings solely of their own volition. They were barred from access to their parents’ original Paradise home; they began to feel the effects of sin; and they were alienated from God. In their sinful and pitiful state, they must have felt strongly the need to turn to God for help. Offering God a gift was likely a voluntary gesture on their part toward gaining God’s favor.

As matters turned out, Abel’s offering was accepted by God, but Cain’s was not. Why? Was it because Abel offered the right things and Cain did not? We cannot be sure that the type of offering had no bearing on matters, since neither of them had been told what was acceptable and what was not. However, it is likely that either type was acceptable. In the Law that Jehovah eventually gave the nation of Israel, acceptable sacrifices included not only animals or animal parts but also roasted grain, sheaves of barley, fine flour, baked goods, and wine. (Leviticus 6:19-23; 7:11-13; 23:10-13) Evidently, it was not the substance alone of the sacrifices of Cain and Abel that caused God to accept one and reject the other.​—Compare Isaiah 1:11; Amos 5:22.

Centuries later, the apostle Paul stated: “By faith Abel offered God a sacrifice of greater worth than Cain, through which faith he had witness borne to him that he was righteous, God bearing witness respecting his gifts.” (Hebrews 11:4) Thus, it was because of faith that Abel was recognized as righteous by God. But faith in what? Faith in Jehovah’s promise that he would provide the Seed, who would ‘bruise the head of the serpent’ and restore the peace and perfection that mankind once enjoyed. From the statement that the Seed would be ‘bruised in the heel,’ Abel might have reasoned that a sacrifice involving the shedding of blood was needed. (Genesis 3:15) Nonetheless, the fact remains that it was Abel’s expression of faith that made his “a sacrifice of greater worth than Cain.”

By the same token, Cain was rejected, not because he offered the wrong kind of sacrifice, but because he lacked faith, as indicated by his actions. Jehovah had clearly pointed out to Cain: “If you turn to doing good, will there not be an exaltation?” (Genesis 4:7) God did not reject Cain on account of any displeasure over his offering. Rather, it was “because his own works were wicked”​—marked by jealousy, hatred, and finally murder—​that Cain was rejected by God.​—1 John 3:12.
I agree completely with what you wrote while I disagree with the submission of the op
The bible says God rejected Cain and his offering while he has respect unto Abel and his offering.This brings us to the fact that God is more interested in the person and not necessarily the offering.Do you remember the widow that Jesus commended despite sacrificing little

Career / Re: Barbing Vs Tailoring Which One Is Advisable To Learn? by Toyinjones2020: 7:37pm On Aug 01, 2020
I will advise you to go for barbing.

As 20 years wey you be, it will help you. When you gain admission, you can be working at the hostel, and be your self boss, and barbing is very cheap and economical, you can just have a good clipper and a mirror you're good to go as a student, you can be making like 1500 or 2000 naira daily when working at the hostel with school light, your own is just to be settling hostel potters weekly with light change.

If you don't want to work at the hostel, you can still get a per time job at any chop, barbing is a skill that you can go to any city without money, with you skill and smartness you can start making money 2 seconds.

When you get your own shop as a barber, if your skill is good, you can be barbing 500 - 1000 per cut, depending on the location and city though.

Barbing is a fast cash thing, you can just walk into any barbing shop with traffic and empty barbing share to charge phone, you can assist the barber and get your instant money.

Tailoring is good, but it's sometimes stressful, and there are some seasons when things will be rough for you as a tailor.

Imagine you travel out of the country with your barbing skill.

My advise for you, is to learn the skill with someone that have the experience not a quack barbing shop, E get why, and just be focus, study hair cuts too all type.

I'm tired of typing errors, I will drop the mic here, if you have any question ask me.
I love what you wrote up there but I as a person learnt tailoring and it really helped me when I was in unilorin.
Tailoring (to me) has an advantage that you can collect clothes and give your clients days or weeks depending on when you have opportunity to sew unlike barbing that you cannot ask your customers to drop their heads
