Do you know what happened in the book of Genesis when people thought they could build a tower to the heavens and show God and others their greatness? Keep reading to find out...
After the flood, God told Noah and his family to have children and spread out around the world. But instead, the people settled in one place.
Then, they began building a tower so that those who came after them would think they were great and would admire their accomplishments.
Higher and higher, they built.
Brick upon brick.
God wasn’t happy about their stubborn hearts, so He confused their languages, forcing them to finally do as He’d asked and travel around to repopulate the earth.
Pride is when we think more of ourselves, or more about ourselves, than we should.
Bragging and boasting and showing off never honors God.
You are valuable—not because of how rich or famous you are or how many friends you have. You are valuable because God specially formed you and loves you.
When pride battles for your heart, fight it off by worshiping and following the Lord.
What does God give to humble people? Check out James 4:6. It might not be what you expect!
But He gives more grace. Therefore He says:
“God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble.”
