When a jester does not leave the stage when the applause is thunderous, his audience easily despises him when his performance declines and they eventually show him the exit with hooting.
We are normally evaluated and marked by our current performance upon leaving the scene.
It is prudent to leave the stage when the applause is intense.
Your strength, power, intelligence and beauty that hinge your position will never last.
When out of selfishness, you entrench yourself but lose the hinges of your position you leave the scene as nobody instead of somebody.
Leave the scene when you are mostly valued and needed, not when you are totally irrelevant.
May you endeavour not lose your worth and dignity before you give way to others.
Fr. Michael Amo Gyau
