Domestic Slave or Wife

Most times we see this common trait of women being treated as domestic slaves, baby making machines bottom line – objects.

In most cases some just perform household chores and duties, suffering from being subjects not equals. Disturbing levels of ill treatment of all forms.

The moment we realise that they are amazing creatures we bring respect and honor to our femanine partners or figures we meet.

Is it or is not Amazon accused of spying on reviewer’s social media profiles

Amazon has reportedly blocked a person from reviewing an e-book  because the company thinks that they are friends with the author. Imy Santiago attempted to post a review of an unnamed title several times, each time being told that it was in violation of the site’s policy. When she pushed the retailer to explain why, the response came back that the piece was stopped because she knew the author personally. At first blush, that makes sense, since it stops unethical authors from garnering unfair praise on unworthy titles — but then you start asking questions, like how in the hell did Amazon know that these two were friends?

Santiago says that the only connection she has to the author is that she started following them on social media after reading their first book. As far as she’s concerned, that’s the only relationship that she has with the question (although we only have that evidence to go on). The easy conclusion to reach, then, is that Amazon is somehow data-mining everybody’s Facebook and Twitter accounts to better understand its customers. Although how it’s able to do that to such an extent that it’s capable of swooping down on a single relationship, we’ll never know. It’s also unclear if eBook authors and reviewers are being monitored more closely than anyone else.

Unfortunately for us, the naturally-secretive company isn’t likely to divulge how it made that connection any time soon. That hasn’t stopped us from emailing in the hope of getting some sort of response, but we’re 99 percent sure that all of our questions will be met with a firm “no comment.”

A smile goes a long way

Points to remember 

Look for what makes you smile

Give out a smile 

Receive a smile 
Once upon a time, a group of 50 people

attended a seminar. Suddenly the speaker

stopped and started giving each person a

balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her

name on it using a marker pen. Then all the

balloons were collected and put in another

room. Now these delegates were let in that

room and asked to find the balloon which

had their respective names written on within

5 minutes.

Everyone was frantically searching for their

names, pushing and colliding with each

other, and there was utter chaos. At the end

of 5 minutes, no one could find their

own balloons. Now each one was asked to

randomly collect a balloon and give it to the

person whose name was written on it. Within

minutes everyone

had their own balloons. The speaker began:

“This is exactly what is happening in our

lives. Everyone is frantically looking for

happiness all around, not knowing where it

is. Our happiness lies in the happiness of

other people. Give them their happiness and

you will get your own happiness too. And

this is the purpose of human life… Learn to

put a smile on one’s face, and U will also

smile in due season.

His Grace, His Seed !

Those who are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted as the seed. For this is the word of promise: “At this time I will come and Sarah shall have a son”…Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise…As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him.” (Romans 9:8-9; Galatians 4:28; and Colossians 2:6)
Once again, our verses reveal a God of promises, who brings forth spiritual children of promise. This truth not only dictates how we enter the family of God, it also determines how we are to live as the children of God.
Ishmael could not be counted as the true seed of Abraham, because he was the product of fleshly ingenuity. “Those who are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God.” Only Isaac could be called the true seed. “But the children of the promise are counted as the seed.” This is true concerning us as well. We became God’s children through faith in the promise of the gospel. “As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name” (John 1:12). We could not be saved by any fleshly provision: “Who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:13). Isaac was born through faith in the promises of God. “For this is the word of promise: ‘At this time I will come and Sarah shall have a son.'” We also were born again through faith in the promises of God. “Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise.”
Children of promise are spiritually birthed by promise and spiritually developed by promise. Now that we have been born into God’s family by faith in His promises, we are to live day by day in the same way that we became His children. “As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him.” The parallel is simple and straightforward: “As… so.” As we were saved, so we are to walk. We started out with the Lord by faith in the life-giving promise of the gospel. “And this is the promise that He has promised us-eternal life” (1 John 2:25). We are to live each day by faith in the life-developing promises that are inherent to the gospel. “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water” (John 7:38).

Are you moved by Promise or perfomance !

  But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises. (Hebrews 8:6)
In every way, the new covenant of grace is a better covenant than the old covenant of law. “But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant.” We have considered some of the better aspects of living under grace: a better High Priest to minister to us, a better sacrifice for sins, a greater intimacy with God, and spiritual substance instead of mere shadows. Another better aspect of grace is that it “was established on better promises.” To this excellent reality, we will now give continuing attention over many days.
Under the old covenant of law, a basic promise is stated repeatedly. It is present in the first giving of the law, when the children of Israel were delivered from bondage in Egypt. “You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, which if a man does, he shall live by them” (Leviticus 18:5). It was present when the law was given again to Israel, as they were preparing to enter the promised land. “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth” (Deuteronomy 28:1). At this time, a corollary promise of warning was made. “But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you” (Deuteronomy 28:15).
The basic promises of the law can be summarized as “do this, and you will live.” The promises under the law are contingent upon the performance of man. If man is able to keep the law, the promises of life and blessing will be fulfilled. Ultimately, the children of Israel demonstrated the inability of man to live up to the standards of God’s holy law. “Notwithstanding, the children rebelled against Me; they did not walk in My statutes, and were not careful to observe My judgments, ‘which, if a man does, he shall live by them'” (Ezekiel 20:21).
The promises under grace are immeasurably better than those under law, because they do not depend upon man’s performance. “I will make a new covenant… I will put My law in their minds…I will be their God…I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more” (Jeremiah 31:31-34).
