The sharpest knife can never sharpen itself.

It not surprising to see a dentist having a serious dental problem. 

A great farmer could die of hunger.

A great motivator can die unmotivated. 

Do not be too proud and complacent with your pgifts, skills and strength, there are days ahead that you cannot even use them for your own good.

Your potentials, power, strength and position are never constant for you to completely lean on them.

Use what you have today to uplift others so that they can also get the strength to help you when you are down tomorrow.

May you be strengthened in all that you do.

God bless you.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau


We do not only rely on the beautiful decoration of a product to determine its quality.

We do not only rely on the simple and ordinary appearances of people to judge their worth.

Messages may appear too simple and familiar but they make sense the more we reflect on them.

Do not just accept or reject people, products, policies and ideas based on their external looks or a remark about them.

Beauty does not merely guarantee quality.

Ugliness does not automatically presuppose worthlessness.

May you always be more reflective in your perception, judgement and decision.

Have a blessed day.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau


A manufacturer knows best, so every product is carefully designed to fulfill an intended purpose.
God knows better than you do, so you were created with your unique traits for a purpose.

You are constantly asking God not to endow you with the needed gifts and strength to reach his plans for you, but you are asking God to change your destiny to suit your own plans and aspirations.

Are you wiser and more knowledgeable than your maker?

Be a bit appreciative to God for how he created you. You are not worthless.

If you do not value how God created you, how can you appreciate the gifts He endows you?

Never let your weaknesses and the great accomplishments of others make you reject yourself and even underestimate the works of God in you.

May you strive to know your value and blessings in order to make you more grateful.

God bless you.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau


You cannot paste what you have not cut.
You cannot paste what you have not copy.

You can only paste what you have cut or copied.

Unless you appropriate the works of others to yourself, you can never reap what you have never sown.

Even to experience and reap the benefits of a miracle, which is free, you need to sow the seed of faith and perseverance.

Excellence can never be  achieved in mediocrity.

Greatness cannot be attained in optimistic indolence.

Holiness is actualised not in vices but in persevering virtuous deeds.

You are not superhuman to be immuned from this reality.

Depending on divine Providence, do your possible best and you will surely reap dividends you never thought of.

God bless you.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau


The viability of a seed does not automatically guarantee its fruitfulness. It depends on where it is planted and how it is cared for.
Having good intentions and plans do not merely grant success, it  depends hugely on how they are appropriately implemented.

We cannot make any significant transformation in life when we only boast of shelved ideas and policies. 

We may have all the resources and the means to grow at our disposal but if we do not use them wisely, we can never grow. 

May you not only over- elaborate on what you have been endowed and the opportunities available but also focus on how you can utilize them for your growth and the growth of others.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau


The erect stick of a snare can never trap any animal unless it is lowered. The lower the stick of the snare, the higher its trapping effect.

The more we humble ourselves, the more we open up to greatness.

Pride gives false identity of ourselves.

Pride makes a sinner, holy without any repentance.

Pride makes the indolent great without any initiative.

Pride makes one a hero without any heroic deed.

Pride quickly elevates us.

Pride gives us momentarily honour and pleasure but it in short time, demotes us into gutters and tatters.

Humility is not attractive but it is productive.

Humility is a mark of the strong, not the weak. 

Humility is a trait of greatness, not a mark of servitude.

Let your humility gradually elevate you, not your pride.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau


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.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau


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
