Every time I come home, my dog does the same thing: barks and squeals in excitement and brings me something. He usually brings me a shoe, but sometimes it’s one of his stuffed toys, every single time. He doesn’t wait for me to come and find him and greet him. He makes the first move every single time. How many of us wait for other people to make the first move? To be greeted first? To be asked how we’re doing first? Take a page from a dog’s playbook, and be a person who is the first to greet someone else.
1. Are you someone who greets others first or do you wait for others to greet you?
2. How can you be someone who is first to greet and welcome others?
Challenge: Think about situations where you see people you know: at church, at the store, at work, or at school. Make a game to see how many people you can be the first to greet!
