Vanity of human constructions

“And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass as they journeyed from the East, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there. And they said one to another; Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone and slime they had for mortar. And they said; Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven, and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said; Behold, the people is one, and they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and their confound their language, that they may not understand one anothers speech.” Genesis 11:1-7

Memory Lesson: The works of man’s hands are nothing compared to the graces and wonder of God.

Blessed be the LORD of heaven and earth!

Blessings be to the LORD of heaven and earth. Blessings forever to our King and Creator. How I love you LORD, and take comfort in your promises. Grant me I pray, a kind and loving heart, an honest love for my neighbour and all peoples. Take away the darkness and evil from my heart, and create within me a new and perfect creation. In spite of my desire to not sin, I still so do which is a frustration to my soul. I pray for our country, that our leaders would hear your voice and obey your laws. Let then not enslave us to the global authorities who hear not your voice, and know not thy holy name. Blessed be the name of Jesus!
