AN UNSETTLING EXPERIENCE

“They found a a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there. They said, ‘Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and and let us make for ourselves a name, otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.’ So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of the whole earth” (Genesis 11:2,4,8).

Whether it’s the initial challenge (Genesis 1:28) of being fruitful and multiplying, and filling the earth, or being the church on mission, it was and is the intention of God that we be not a settled but scattered people; a people who go forth. He is a God with a plan and will work to keep us on that plan.
