In Genesis 11 we see a generation of humankind completely united in language and purpose. But what do they do with that unity? They unite against their Creator, Savior, and Lord, claiming themselves to be almighty and great. God's discipline for that generation was also his grace and mercy, that we might see how small we really are and trust in the one, true, Almighty.
"The Lord said, 'If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.'" Genesis 11:6-7
