We nigeria always pick offense whenever someone uses his or her left to give us something, if left hand was a bad thing God would not attach it to our body.

Using left hand to give someone something is a sign of disrespect because if you are not a lefty it will be very difficult for you to do something with your left hand for example writing,eating and so on for me it shows disrespect

even me want to know the reason. I remember how my p.man always screw me whenever I tried given him something through left hands.

I guess it because left hand shows a sign of disrespect. and base on African belief and traditional it more proper to use right hand.

That's is just the point.. Left is a sign disrespect and indiscipline

*The bible said, when offering, let your left hand don't know what your right hand is giving.
*The bible said, when Jesus ascended into heaven, he seated @ the right hand of the father.
*The bible also said, On the judgement day, the children of God will be on the right hand and those of Satan will be on the left hand.
*
Spiritually, if yu want to pick up charm so as not affect you, you use left hand. Likewise, left hand is used in dropping charm. After defeacating, you use your left hand to wipe your anus.
* Based on this, how can you use left hand to give something to an elder? It depicts insult, indiscipline and the likes

What someone told me is that when you go to the toilet it is the left hand that is used to wash up that is why Africans or our forefathers dont like receiving things from the left hand.

May I make my contribution. Well, from biblical interpretation, the left speaks of judgement, speaks of disrespect, speaks of curse, speaks of bad. Elders dislike it when the left hand is used, based on the premise of disrespect. However, the only exceptional case here, is when someone is a left-handed person. Also, out of a thing of culture as Africans.
