You didn’t mean for that you happen!


Gen. 11:3-8 “And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. “ LESSON - When people willfully choose to disobey God’s commands, it is typically for selfish and prideful reasons. God’s command to “replenish” the earth was not only for the benefit of restarting earth’s population, He also established this command for mankind’s protection from themselves. God said in this chapter that their actions would result with “nothing being restrained from them”. “God said” had been replaced with “let us” and the desire for God’s glory had been replaced with “let us make a name (for ourselves)”. Whenever we choose to disobey God’s commands, we open ourselves to consequences we do not want nor would have ever intended.
