The Gospel Project – Week 4 – The Tower of Babel
The story of the Tower of Babel helps us understand the devastating effects of sin. Even after God had destroyed all life on earth through the flood and graciously saved Noah’s family and the animals, it wasn’t long before people disobeyed God again.
God instructed Noah to spread out and fill the earth. Instead, people decided it best to settle. Rather than bringing glory to God by following God’s plan, people decided to glorify themselves. They built a tower to make a name for themselves.
God’s plan to populate the earth following the flood could not be sidetracked. When God confused the languages of the people, they were forced to move away from one another and into people groups and nations bound by single languages. Eventually one of these nations would become God’s chosen people. Through the nation of Israel, Christ would come to save the world.
Remember to review those Gospel Project cards, and don’t feel the need to make it something “stiff.” Have fun with the cards. Ask your children questions about them. They soak in a lot more than you might think. I am always amazed at how much my kids are learning and how much they remember.
Also don’t forget that the kids will be singing their songs in the morning church service on Sunday, October 7th. They will review the songs on Wednesday nights at 6:30 at the beginning of RAs and GAs. I hope you all have a great week. I’m praying for you!
