Ready, Set, Go: At Babel (Primary)

on August 1, 2019

Kon’nichiwa, racers! We hope you had an awesome time at The Incredible Race today. As we raced to Asia, we learned about when the whole earth spoke the same language. After the flood, God told Noah and his family to spread out and fill the earth. But the people at the plain of Shinar worked together to build a city and a tower reaching to the heavens to keep themselves together. This act of disobedience to God was part of the sin cycle that we learned about yesterday. However, God, in his love, had a plan to help them spread out over the world like he had commanded them. The Bible says that God came down and confused their language, scattering the family groups around the earth. The people walked to their new homes, rode on boats, or traveled on animals, perhaps like our animal pal Jamal the camel. The events at the tower of Babel (Genesis 10–11) explain how people ended up living all around the world, why we may have some different physical characteristics, and why we speak different languages. But we are all part of the same family and need the same Savior, Jesus Christ!

On this leg of the race, we stop at the tower of Babel and check out the important and loving roadblock God provided there.
