Project 4:4--Day Four

Today's reading covers Gen. 10-11. This doesn't include too much to comment on, and in fact, none of our discussion questions are over today's reading material. Today's reading included the story of the Tower of Babel, and the descendants of Noah, particular those of the line of Shem, from whom would descend Abram, the father of the Hebrews.

There were, however, a couple of things that caught my attention in the story of the Tower of Babel. The first of which is that God was displeased with an attitude of pride. One of the reasons the people decided to build tower to the heavens was "so that we may makea name for ourselves".

Another interesting thing for me was what the Lord said about our abilities as humans working together: "If as one peole speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them."

Nothing, huh? Seems like some pretty impressive ability. Let us just always remember that our abilities come from Him.
