Daily Devotion from the Church Health Center – Genesis 11:6-7, 9

Tuesday, May 14, 2013 – Pentecost Sunday, Year C

Genesis 11:6-7, 9And the LORD said, “Look they are one people, and they have all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do; nothing that they propose to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down, and confuse their language there, so that they will not understand one another’s speech…” Therefore it was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.

The people of Babel said they wanted to”…make a name for ourselves” (v4a). This passage reminds us that we should be mindful, as best we can, to God’s will and not our will. While we prayed to be better listeners to one another yesterday, today we pray to be better listeners to God.

Prayer: Gracious God, help us hear your voice in all the ways you choose to speak to us. Amen.
