It is a shame, not a gain when people doubt and find it extremely difficult to link our identity to the identity of the group we find ourselves.

Our consistency, credibility, loyalty, commitment, faithfulness and trust are in great question when our core identity changes with time and situation, not for self improvement,  but for our critics to applaud and accept us.

Critics are not always right and you do not always need to rely on criticism before you can know that you are on the wrong path.

Who you are, where you are, what you have and who you want to you become make you unique, not superior or inferior to others.

Do not rush to change your core identity, being mocked and criticized of who you are does not automatically make you bad.

Be firm and strive to add value to your identity.

God bless you.

There are fake products but there are also genuine ones.
There people with malicious intentions but there are those with good and transforming intentions.

There are bad people in our time but that does not make all unfavourable allegations against people to be true, there can be false accusations as well.

Do not just abandon a sackful of beans because of the few stones in it.

Be very careful, you might turn down your miracle, great asset, life companion and even your Redeemer because of the reality of evil in the world.

The world is not totally bad.

We should not only highlight the evils of the world, we should present the beautiful picture of the world as well.

May you always be inspired by the positive side of the world and be cautioned by the dark side of the world.

God bless you.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau


A great benefactor is likely to be a violent exploitative personality and an abuser.
Do not think that you have given enough so you can demand anything and treat those you helped anyhow.

Being in dire need does not make one a candidate for abuses bad and treatment, a beggar also has rights and dignity.

Helping those in need does not give us the right to abuse them.

Sometimes, under the pretext charity, people indirectly enslave and abuse those they help.

Charity loses its essence when it becomes the basis for exploitation and unnecessary demands from the beneficiary.

Discipline loses its transforming effect when it infringes the rights of others.

Our acts of benevolence and discipline do not in any way render our abuses and infringement of people’s rights irrelevant.

May you always value and respect the rights of people you help.

Have a great day.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau


Ignorance is a poisonous deceptive tool; it can easily inflate our ego to get a wrong picture of ourselves and our accomplishments.

Ignorance can easily make the weak perceive himself as unconquerable, and mediocrity as excellence.

You are confidently boasting as an inventor but in reality you are imitating not the inventor but those who imitated the inventor.

What you proudly claim as unprecedented has been the humble beginnings of someone in past.

Your finest ideas and policies of today might have been useless and abandoned in the past.

Do not think that your are the pivot on which the world revolves.

People were living before your conception.

People were healed before you were born.

People were inspired and  enlightened before your existence.

Your contributions are needed but the world  will still move on without you.

May you not let your ignorance blindfold you to perceive yourself as indispensable.

Stay blessed

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau


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.

Remain blessed.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau


When we over-concentrate on exposing our attractive looks rather than our good thoughts and character, we lure people not to love us but to lust for us.
When a poet only focuses on his eloquence rather than the relevance of his message, he wins admirers but his words do not have any significant impact on his   listeners.

The way we present ourselves mostly dictates how people relate with us.

Appearances are not always constant and reliable, they normally change with time and space.

Do not be happy when people admire and value based on your external nice looks, they will  certainly abandon you when such beauty fades.

Do not be sad when people despise based on your looks, people, in days to come will struggle to catch glimpse of you.

May you build your trust and companionship on the stronger foundation of love rather than mere appearance.

God bless you.

No matter the beauty and the peaceful environment of a stopover, it cannot become the final destination of any serious and purposeful traveller.
When we spend precious time and on things that are of no or of less relevance to our course and goal, we do not only labour in vain but you also retrogress in life and  make our future bleak.

Side attractions are useful but they are not the ultimate goal.

Recreation and rest are very productive but when we over engage in them, they become powerful retrogressive tools.

It is good to correct people but when we spend all our time on finding faults and judging people, without correcting ourselves, we will eventually lose our place in eternity.

To grow in every aspect of your life, relevance and usefulness should be your guiding principle.

God bless you

The beauty of a flower cannot prevent it from withering.
The beauty, the wisdom, the strength and the achievement of a man can never grant him immortality.

The common destination of all that is born is death.

The common trait of all that exist is extinction.

Popularity and dignity fades with time.

Current issues will surely become a thing of the past.

Your unprecedented achievements will not be remembered in days to come.

You can never dodge this reality. 

If you, who form the basis of all your belongings will fade out,  then what you have is like a mirage, it has short life span. 

May you always value the gift of life and prepare for the reality of death.

Stay blessed.
