Wednesday, January 4th: Genesis 10 - 12, Matthew 4 ~ Nathan

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Genesis 10-12, Matthew 4

I've found the readings this year from Genesis have been filled with many more miracles and interesting points that we just read over and aren't able to cover. I've found the readings to be interesting and it makes me wonder what I've all passed over and missed so far?

Genesis 11:8-9
8 So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. [9] That is why it was called Babel because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.

The people were getting too confident and therefore tried to build a tower to reach heaven, which God stopped. What a simple way to stop progress, changing the way the people could communicate! Would work today as well, even though we have modern technology that would help us understand each other, we would still be at a loss if we had to all of a sudden work with someone from a totally different background and way of thinking.

Would be very frustrating and makes me think that maybe I need to take time more for others and listen, and try to be more understanding.

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage: Genesis 13-15; Matthew 5:1-26

Satan tempting Jesus reminded me that we have to be very careful to use scripture in its proper context and not twist it to justify sin.
