Lifestlye Greeting! I See You. I Am Here

Author Peter Senge, in his book "The Fifth Discipline Field Book" retells the following story:

"Among the tribes of Northern Natal in South Africa, the most common greeting, equivalent to 'hello' in English, is the expression 'sawu bona'. It literally means, 'I see you'. If you are a member of the tribe, you might reply by saying 'sikhona' or 'I am here'. The order of the exchange is important: until you see me, I do not exist. It’s as if, when you see me, you bring me into existence."

In our busy and pressured lives, we often fail to truly see people. We brush past them in our over-focused desire to get to our goals. If we can slow down so that we truly see people, we may actually discover that they have much to contribute to our lives. It’s as we connect with people, in deep and personal ways, that they will invest into our lives and make us better people.

God designed us for people, not things. It’s as we see and connect with people our lives are enriched.
