Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

– Genesis 11:7 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Isn’t it interesting that language was the great divider of humanity? This passage deals with the drama around the tower of Babel, but there is a lot to be said about the way that language divides us even when we speak the same dialect! We all need to take the time to understand and to be understood, for God’s Spirit redeems our tower of Babel confusion with the Day of Pentecost, where God’s Spirit united his people from different languages into one people—the Body of Christ.
