Day 7 - The Tower of Babel

Can you find the cross?  God has warned that sin and wrong choices will bring His terrible judgement once again.  The good news is, God has always had a plan to save us from our sins through the cross of Jesus Christ.

“Let’s build a great city with a tower that reaches to the skies – a monument to our greatness!  This will bring us together and keep us from scattering all over the world.” — Genesis 11:4 (NLT)  

      Sadly, as Noah’s family grew and spread over the earth, mankind forgot all that had happened.  Do you think people today are a lot like people in Noah’s day?   God planned for them to form many nations that would follow Him, but they wanted to make themselves great instead.  They all chose to settle in the same place and started building a great tower that would reach to the skies.  They wanted a great monument to their greatness.  Instead, God confused their languages so they couldn’t understand each other, and scattered them all over the world.   Do you think people today are still trying to build monuments to their greatness?

Today's Prayer

     Lord, forgive us when we forget we can’t live without You.  You are the only giver of life.  Thank You for loving us so much You’ll do whatever it takes to bring us back to You.

Today's Activity:

      Have a contest to see who can draw the most imaginative Tower of Babel.  Have the children sign their drawings and hang them on the fridge.  Discuss how pride and rebellion always separate us from God.  Have them memorize Isaiah 55:9, “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

The cross is on the large boulder on the path ahead of the people.
