Sunday 9 July 2023



I was thinking this morning...... I walked into one of the new supermarkets in Port-Harcourt last Wednesday and noticed how fully manned the store was. There was arguably a staff to two rows of shelves and I wondered how they will break even in this globally depressed economy with so many staff. But then I imagined how serious an issue shoplifting had become.

To warn would-be thieves, supermarket management has become creative. In one shop, there is a sign that says 'Shoplifters to enjoy free ride in a police van,' and another simply put up a life size photo cutout of a policeman looking at you. But one that really got my attention was a sign that says 'Shoplifters will be prostituted.'

While some might think it to be grammatical error, me I don't trust the intentions of men o. Has the society become so bad that they would rather commit the thief to sex trade than to law enforcers? Could it be because they know they will make money from it unlike calling the police where they will spend money?

Sadly, it seems people would rather be prostituted than be prosecuted. Last week, the Vice Chancellor (VC) of University of Port-Harcourt threatened to dismiss a female student over indecent dressing. When a young girl leaves her hostel for classroom half naked all in the name of fashion, you need not call any fashion police, she has already been 'prostituted.'

The craziest of it all are pregnant ladies posting their nude photos on social media calling it maternity shoots. Chai! Despite it being so offensive, you need not call the morality police, they have already been 'prostituted.'

Having sexual relations with people for money is contact prostitution but when you expose your nudity to the public to gain carnal attraction or likes on social media, it is Non-contact Prostitution.

What has happened to shame is still a mystery. Has shame been kidnapped or assassinated? Uncovering your nakedness exposes your shame (Isaiah 47:3). If you no longer feel ashamed, then this question is for you 'have you been prostituted?'

Stay hopeful. God's got our back.

Happy Sunday!
