The LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. The LORD said, “Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them. Genesis 10:5-6
Even at its best, communication is poor. But when we communicate well the possibilities are endless. God purposely confused the language of men in a sweeping act of grace and love. Man had neglected the command to fill the earth and be fruitful and multiply and became fixated on building a tower as high as heaven. God confounded their efforts and scattered them.
I wonder if sometimes God confuses communication on purpose today? This is a fascinating question to me, since a big part of my professional life is aimed at improving communications.
God, You have called me and those within the church I serve to do the impossible with You – to win the human race back to You! You have given us a message – the gospel of Jesus Christ. Help me communicate well personally and use me to help others. Do the impossible!
