Ubuntu! I Am Because We Are. – The OverComer

with No Comments

An anthropologist tested African children of the Xhosa Tribe. He placed a large bowl of mixed fruit underneath a tree and told the children that the first one to reach the tree could have the whole bowl. When he told the children to run, they all took each others’ hands and ran together! They all shared and enjoyed the mixed fruit. This is the African concept of “UBUNTU!”

When asked why they did not run the course alone, they answered,

“UBUNTU! How can we be happy when others are sad and hungry?”

UBUNTU in Xhosa is roughly translated,

“I am because we are.”


Many times, other peoples, cultures, tribes, and tongues
are really more “civilized” and “Christian” than we are.
