The Ubuntu Philosophy – I am because we are.
An anthropologist proposed a game to some African tribal children. He placed a basket of sweets near a tree and made the children stand 100 metres away. He then announced that whoever reaches first would get all the sweets in the basket.
When he said, “Ready. Steady. Go!”
Guess what these children did? They held each other’s hands, ran together towards the tree, divided the sweets equally among themselves, ate the sweets and enjoyed it.
When the anthropologist asked them why they did so, they merely answered, ‘Ubuntu’, querying, ‘How can one be happy when the others are sad?’
Ubuntu in their language means ‘I am because we are!’
This is a strong message for all generations. Let us always have this attitude and spread happiness wherever we go. Let us strive to have an Ubuntu philosophy: I AM BECAUSE WE ARE.
Meditation: Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. – Philippians 2:4
But to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath. – Romans 2:8
You will succeed because Jesus loves You!
