Day 3

Day 3 Reading – Genesis Chapters 8-11

Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth.” Genesis 11:4 NIV

181181

We are taught from a seemingly young age to go out and a make a name for ourselves.

We truly are in the age of “Me.”

Interesting then that when the people of old set out to make a name for themselves that God scattered them across the face of the earth.

Not sure what that means for people in today’s world that are self-seeking, but I do know that I would rather spend my time building God’s name rather than my own.

After all, I will pass from this world, but God will remain forever.

 

Day 4 Reading – Job Chapters 1-5

 

 

Author:

I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
