Scripture Union Daily Guide 26 April 2022 MESSAGE

God’s command to Noah was “be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth” (9:1), but these people show complete disregard and disobedience to God’s command (vs.3,4).

Firstly, they sought to stay together instead of spreading out and filling the earth.

Secondly, they wanted to build a tower to go and see where God was staying.

Thirdly they wanted to make a name for themselves! They were seeking their own glory. What an affront to God! Why did God decide to confuse these people (vs.6‐7)? What projects do we engage in today that would be the same as building the Tower of Babel?

Look around and listen to what people are boasting about today, you will notice that many do not acknowledge God in their undertakings. Anything that we do that takes God’s place in our hearts is a Tower of Babel. It could be building a house, a business, a nice and expensive car, positions of power, or a well‐known spouse. Do you have a tower of Babel of your own?

When these cause us to be proud and not put God in his rightful place, then we are taking God’s glory, Isaiah 42:8; 1 Corinthians 10:31.

For Further Study
Further reading: Acts 1:8‐14; 8:1‐4; 11:19. (We must not wait for persecution to scatter us).

Practice/Word Application

Thought: Think about Proverbs 3:5, 6.
• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
• Lord, help us to give you thanks for the blessings you have given to us and not to be proud.

Offer a prayer of faith in line with Colossians 1:13

One Year Bible Reading Plan
