We are grateful unto God as a nation for how far he has brought us although we could have gone farther than this.

#BGI60- The BLAME GAME is Enough

It’s true we have not reached where we might envisaged ourselves to be by now. And that our Founding Fathers would not be happy to see the state of the nation 60 years after they put everything on the line to fight for our INDEPENDENCE but …

We can’t continue blaming ourselves, one against the other over the errors and mistakes we might have made down the 60 year journey. We can’t be crying over spilt milk all the time.

The funniest thing to me is BLAME GAME never solves the problem. If you’ve ever watched a football match involving children, you would understand what I am talking about.

Should a goal be conceded, everyone in the team would blame the most culpable player especially the goalkeeper or the defender involved. Sometimes the team continues to blame the child such that that weight of guilt is carried all over his head as he plays and such is antagonised by not even given a pass for the rest of the match.

If the team does not have the good guidance of an adult to steer the team’s attention from the blame-game to the MAIN GAME, the team would lose the match with the possibility of conceding more goals, for which a Nigerian man would say _’na who cause am’?_

Blaming never solves the problem: it only pleases our human nature to ascertain who was at fault whilst WASTING PRECIOUS TIME that could have been used to address the problem and find an amicable solution to it.

Time and tide, they say, waits for no man. So if as a country, we really want to move with our contemporaries based on AGE like the Malaysias, Singapores and co., it’s about time we limit, reduce & STOP this Blame Game/ Fault Finding Attitude and find solutions to the ever growing and complicating issues facing us as a country: some of which have been here for decades unsolved & unaddressed.

#BGI60 DON’T SPEAK ILL of Others

#BGIM Special Edition

We bless God that Ghana, our beloved country is now 60 years old. After celebrating our Independence Day yesterday, we return to work today with this #BGIM Special Edition which should help Ghana take great strides in the years ahead of us.

#BGI60- DON’T SPEAK ILL OF THE OTHER

Over the past 10 days, two of my church leaders whom I work under have reiterated the need to desist from speaking ill of others though the issue might be true.

Everyone has flaws. And the same time, everyone has strengths. But sadly, it looks like over the past 60 years in Ghana, we seem to magnify the FLAWS & WEAKNESSES of others rather than their Successes & Strengths. And I believe it’s time we change the trend.

The flaws of the other are real and it is even true the person committed that error or mistake BUT we shouldn’t tag that person with that mistake forever. Worse enough, we use that error or mistake to soil and dent the person’s hard-earned reputation. I know you have numerous examples of such incidents from school, church, workplace and in the nation at large

That is not to say, we shouldn’t speak up when people are doing wrong or are depriving the whole nation of important benefits. But that we shouldn’t use the phenomenon that bad news sells to spread false information or the negative aspect of their lives. The disheartening aspect of such phenomena is by the time the person would be vindicated, we might have ‘spoilt’ his name without repair and most people would not even hear that what was initially said was not the WHOLE TRUTH.

If your boss asks you to speak about how you see your other colleagues, please don’t paint all of them black so that only you can be promoted.

If someone does a work and it is not satisfactory, please appreciate his efforts first before turning to outline his errors NOT FORGETTING to give him or her suggestions on how to do it better.

If you hear something bad about someone, be cautious in spreading it (double-check before) because remember that person also has a family cos I know if he or she was your family member, you would exercise restraint in spreading that news.

It’s time we move forward as a nation. It’s time we look at the good sides of people to encourage others who for the fear of their names and images being soiled have kept away from working so that they can all come on-board.

WE HAVE A NATION TO BUILD.
We need each other.
So for once, let’s STOP Speaking ill of Others.
We need that person and we need you too.

#BGIM SEQUEL to PAY YOUR WORKERS- FOUNDERS’ DAY EDITION

Anytime workers here of pay 💵, they are very excited. So most workers were happy to hear that this week’s #BGIM was urging employers to pay their workers and not to delay with it in order for God’s blessings to be on their business continually.

As it is said, there are always two sides of a coin. Now, we look at Workers’ side of the coin.

RESPECT YOUR BOSS

Colossians 3:22-23 reads from the NIV
v22. Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything; and do it, not only when their eye is on you and to curry their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord.

v23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,

The King James puts part of the text as “…obey your masters in all things, NOT AS EYE PLEASERS 👀 as menpleasers…”

It is the moral and religious responsibility of every worker to respect their employers and superiors at work. Some workers just don’t respect their workers. They look at the flaws of their masters and use it as a reason to disrespect their masters.

Some say their boss is not a religious person say a Christian, hence they do not give such bosses the maximum respect they would have given to a Christian boss. Others look at the low education of their boss and don’t respect because they are always talking about big things, looking at other so-called big companies and also looking forward to become the Managing Director of that same company. Some say their boss is not compassionate or generous, so they don’t show maximum respect to them.

But truth is whatever the reason is, you have to respect your boss. The God who gave you employment is that same God that placed you under him. If you disrespect your boss, unknowingly, you are being disrespectful to God Almighty in Heaven. That’s a truth most of us don’t know especially the young people of today anytime we disrespect our bosses and the elders in our community.

The Bible reiterates this point in Romans 13:1-“Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”

Respect your boss no matter the reason even if your pay has delayed. If you respect, the Good God who sees all you do would open greater doors 🚪 of blessings for you there whereas your colleagues are acting as menpleasers. Don’t be like them who work only when their master is watching.

God is watching 👀, so respect your boss.
