December 5: Genesis 11:1-9

Welcome to The Intentional Podcast. Setting aside time for prayer and Scripture meditation can change the posture of your day. Thank you for spending a few minutes with us as we turn our attention to what Jesus has for the day ahead.

OPENING PRAYER:  

Before you read the Scripture for today, limit the distractions around you and spend time in prayer. Spend time thanking God for the opportunity we have to spend with Him through the reading of His Word.

SCRIPTURE:

Genesis 11:1-9

HISTORICAL CONTEXT:

Ancient readers would have understood the language in verse 4 to be referring to a Ziggurats. Ziggurats looked like pyramids, but they had no inside — they were packed with fill dirt. Ziggurats were not places of worship. It was a temple that linked heaven and earth and accommodated the god of the people.
