WITHOUT GOD we can DO ‘NOTHING’
January 4 Bible Reading: Genesis Chapters 10-12
The unfinished tower and city of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9) stands out as a dire testimony that God hates every effort of man to make a name for himself apart from God. Their plans to build the city and tower were harmless, but they were conceived out of selfishness, inflated egos and pride – just to make a name for themselves (Gen. 11:4). God’s principle in this matter is specified in Psalms 127:1 - “Unless the Lord builds a house (or tower or city) they labor in vain who build it…” With their building projects unfinished and having serious communication issues, God scattered these workers everywhere on the earth into oblivion.
