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
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
