United we stand

Although the people from the east migrated, they still had the same language as those they met along the way. Together, they were convinced to join forces in order make a name for themselves. Maybe they felt a need to protect themselves from God’s influence or to be noticed by him. Their need for self-government or significance drove them to complete this difficult building project, the tower of Babel. God saved them from the propensity to live life without Him by giving the gift of various languages. United we stand but first we must remember who unites us. The Lord Jesus Christ gives us a great purpose …His kingdom come and His will be done. – Teresa

 Genesis 11:1-9 (ESV)

11 “Now the whole earth had one language and the same words. 2 And as people migrated from the east, they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there. 3 And they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly.” And they had brick for stone, and bitumen for mortar. 4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth.” 5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of man had built. 6 And the Lord said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that they may not understand one another’s speech.” 8 So the Lord dispersed them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city. 9 Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the Lord confused[a] the language of all the earth. And from there the Lord dispersed them over the face of all the earth.”
