Read Genesis 11:4 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Would you rather live next door to your best friend or in a city in another state?
Parent Note: It would be much easier to see our best friend if we lived next door to each other. This is pretty much what the people living in this area thought. Living near other people would make it easier for them to trade, they would have people nearby that they could be friends with, and together, they could offer each other protection. Even though God had told the people to multiply and populate the entire earth, the people decided that they didn’t want to do that. They were disobeying God.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for our world.
This big earth is a testament to Your power and creativity.
Help me to use the earth in a way that honors You.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
