Devotional – Getting a Closer Look

And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of man had built. Genesis 11:5 ESV

The people desired to make a name for themselves (Genesis 11:4) so they devised an audacious plan on the grandest scale. “Come,” they said, “let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens.”

And, so, they began their great project constructing a tower that would be so large, and so tall it would reach into the heavens. Impressive. Yet, in one of the more humorous Bible verses we are told the Lord “came down to see the city and the tower!” LOL. From God’s viewpoint their tower wasn’t so impressive.

Their building project was so puny! It was so infinitesimally small God implies He couldn’t even see it from Heaven! God ‘had to’ come down to ‘see it.’

What about you? Are you working on ‘great’ projects attempting to make a name for yourself? Or, are you busy making His name known?

Lord, today, would you help me to glorify your name?  And help me to make your name known and glorified on the Earth? Amen.
