The main event in Genesis 11 was that everyone at first spoke the same language, God changed their languages and felt they needed to be scattered. The first thing that happened was the world migrated east to settle in a valley in the land of Shina. Once they got there, they built a tower to reach heaven. Next, God gave them different languages and scattered them across the world. Finally, everyone got to live hundreds of years old and have many daughters and sons. A life lesson we can learn from the passage is that pride is a flaw in mankind that can separate us as people.
"Come let's us mold bricks and harden them with fire " (Gn 11:3).
"The lord came down to see the city and the tower that the people had built"(Gn 11:5).
"Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that no one will understand the speech of another"(Gn 11:7).
We shouldn’t build up walls and shut others out, but we should build bridges and unite so we can try and do good in the world.
