Ubuntu African Proverbs
“The sun does not forget the village just because it is small.”African Proverb
Lesson 1: Success is success no matter the size. You have your idea of success, I have my idea of success, and everyone else has theirs. No matter how big or small of an achievement, if you’ve succeeded, you’ve succeeded and that is something to celebrate. Just because you are small does not mean that you can't succeed. Whether you are small or big, if you plant apple, you will reap apple not mango. Don't devalue yourself because of shape or size.
Lesson 2: How would you treat someone if you realized that the person was great figure? You would do all the best that you can to show care and affection to that person with all the time that we have. But why then do we treat other people with less respect than we should? Everyone is important no matter his position now hence should be accorded similar respect and kindness.
Lesson 3: This proverb also teaches us that; the same way rain doesn't forget the ocean just because it is big, God does not forget you no matter the circumstance you are in now. God does not discriminate whether small or big. We all know that many people who have changed the world came from humble backgrounds. God gives chance to everyone so no matter how low you are, have faith and know that God will never forget you.
