Scripture: Genesis 11:1-6
In Genesis 11:1-6 we are told, “Now the whole earth had one language and one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there. Then they said to one another, ‘Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly.’ They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. And they said, ‘Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.’ But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. And the Lord said, ‘Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they began to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.’” Because we are made in the image and likeness of God, what we can conceive, we can also create. If we start to view words as building blocks, then we can begin to construct our world more in line with God’s Word and more in line with the original creation! Death and life are in the power of the tongue. How would relationships change if we started treating everyone as blameless, even though we know they are not? If we treat others the way Christ treats us, then it should make for a much happier place to live!
