I think God has a great sense of humor and has included lots more of it in the Bible than we ever see. After reading Psalm 2 this morning, where God is laughing at those puny kings and leaders who shake their fist at him, I turned to Genesis 11.
Human leaders get together saying, “Come, let’s build a tower up to heaven and make a great name for ourselves—or else we might be scattered over the earth” (which is what God had commanded Noah’s descendants to do in Genesis 9:1).
God says, “Come, let’s go down and see what those people are doing and confuse their language.”
Man’s rebellions ambitions and God’s sovereign plans—which wins out? God’s, of course! I’m glad I’m on his side.
