As humans, if we always read meanings into whatever we’re faced with then we might as well decide to coil up in action instead of acting freely.
Behind every action, there is an effect which can either be positive or negative.
A renowned pastor in Ghana has delved into a very interesting topic that Ghanaians have always had an issue with.
During an interview session with Joy News, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams of Action Chapel International made it known that behind any attitude that does not make sense, there’s an influence somewhere.
He further stated that as a people we have a problem because we do not celebrate each other. He said that we should always give constructive criticism instead of just criticising negatively to demoralise others.
He advised Ghanaians to be generational thinkers like Dr. Kwame Nkrumah instead of just thinking about only ourselves. He made it known that we should always envisage the possibilities of leaving something tangible for the unborn generation.
Also, he cautioned that we need to shy away from politicising issues in Ghana and work towards our common future. He cited an example that Americans and the Chinese have collectively raised billionaires to help their economy and it’s time to also groom some Ghanaians to be millionaires and billionaires irrespective of their political affiliation.
He proposed mass awareness and the need to psyche our minds and renew it towards possibilities. He added that we should put a stop to the blame games and the acts of denials and renew our minds towards prosperity.
As a Ghanaian, do you see unnecessary criticisms as a worrying trend in our society?
