And they said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven…”

-Genesis 11:4

Today many see the potential of man as limitless, but the idea did not begin in the modern age. It goes as far back as the first book of the Bible when the descendants of Noah built the tower of Babel. It is amazing to see what man has accomplished since. Advances in aviation, medicine, technology and communication over just the last century are incredible. Yet, the most important things in life man cannot do. In and of himself he cannot know God, stop sinning or gain eternal life. Only God can draw a person to Himself, give victory over sin and the free gift of eternal life to those who place their faith in Jesus Christ. Only then can man do that of utmost importance, live his life to the glory of God. Yes, it is amazing what man can do, but it is far more amazing what God can do! Man has his limitations, but “the things impossible with men are possible with God.” Be encouraged!
