What was the Tower of Babel?
A ziggurat, a pyramid shaped structure with steps or ramps leading up all sides.
Quote from C.S. Lewis:
Pride is spiritual cancer: it eats up the very possibility of love, or contentment or even common sense.
C’mon, what harm can a little pride do?
Consider this story about 6-year-old Ethan Haus and his dog Remmie.
Quote from Steve Fines:
I could see four heat spots approaching. When they got about 50 feet away I saw the dog get up and start running around. Then you could see one of the rescuers run up to the boy and pick him up.
Quote from Sheriff Joel Brott:
Without 700-plus volunteers we never would have been in a position to make this rescue happen.
Play the “what if” game
What if Ethan’s Mom, Sheri, was full of pride? What if Sheriff Joel Brott was full of pride?
Proverbs 16:18 is right
Pride goes before destruction…
Everything said, now leads to one final question
What pride-towers are you building?
