Great Ideas, Wrong Motives

Great Ideas, Wrong Motives

Today's WordThe first ever sky scrapper was to be built by men who were strong, able and capable. They were great thinkers and talented builders, they were going to build with the finest materials, their minds were made up and there hearts were united. Nothing in the world could hinder, nothing, no one, but God. He scattered them and their plans in Genesis 11: 6, 8 (GWT)

Now why would God stop the people from doing such a phenomenal thing, something that had never been done, something wonderful? I believe He saw their motives.
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. Genesis 11:4 (GWT)

They wanted to make a name for themselves, to get famous, maybe even to be like God. We all get inspired to do great things, noble things, things that would even appear to bring glory to the kingdom. But if our motives are not right, God will not approve of it, no matter how glorious it appears in the eyes of men. #Motivecheck

  1. Quite true, Ugochi. God will never pay for what he did not order neither will he finish what he never started. However, when we say “Yes”, to his will, he’ll back us up 100%.

    1. I like this, “God will never pay for what He did not order!”
