•7. God is Not Impressed with Our Skills. Our Skills often make us Act Like Show-Offs. “Then build an altar there to the LORD your God, using natural, uncut stones. You must not shape the stones with an iron tool.” Duet 27:5 He values our heartfelt worship, not our skills and abilities

•13. The Power of Unity & Communication “ And the LORD said, “Behold, the people are one and they have all one language, and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be withheld from them which they have imagined to do.” Gen. 11:6
•14. “ Come, let Us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” Gen. 11:7 So the Trinity went all the way down to see man’s little tower!
