27 Jan Genesis 11:7

7 “Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, so that they will not understand one another’s speech.”    

What happens when you don’t obey your parents? Getting in trouble is called a consequence. God also gives us consequences for disobedience. We see the people of the earth with one language, and instead of continuing to spread out as God desired, they had stopped and built a giant tower to make themselves known. The people faced God’s consequence. He confused their language. In fact, have you ever heard the word babble? It means to speak nonsense. The Tower of Babel story is where we get the word babble from because no one understood each other anymore. Remember, obedience is always the best choice!
