The Tower of Babel
October 26, 2018 • Genesis 11:1-9
What is the purpose of the curious, yet familiar story of the Tower of Babel? It tells us the origin of nations and languages, but if we pay attention, we also discover that it teaches us a core truth about why we are the way we are. We learn that this effort to build a tower to the heavens speaks about our human motivations of pride and fear and our need for God. Furthermore, God’s intervention in this story points to God’s ultimate plan for all nations.
