  1. Very thoughtful sermon. I agree it is a foretelling of what God did for mankind by “coming down from Heaven” in the person of Jesus, who further demonstrated the mercy God showed at Babel, in His day-to-day activities, and in giving His own life as ransom for our sins.
    Really loved your comment: “Our broken places are God’s gifts (and memorials) to show us He has something better.”
    Further, this story reminds me that my security, meaning, and significance is based on God’s love for me. Because everything is from God and for God, anything I achieve is a gift, for which I am grateful. I have everything I need — He provides my needs, when I give up my life to let Him direct my path.
    One last thought: This story shows us that God is a loving God. He gives us mercy — He gives us another chance when we mess up — We need to give Him our pride in exchange for His mercy, which we need to pass on to others who make a mistake. Who are they? — Everyone!

    1. Thanks for the comments Mike. I appreciate your insight regarding God’s motives (love for us!), and how we need to recognize that every achievement is a gift from Him.
