There is a unity that beautifully mirrors that of the Triune God and there is a unity that is extremely wicked and destructive. How can we promote the former and avoid the latter? By taking heed to the Word and wisdom of God. Though God sovereignly works all things together for His glory and our good, we are called to “be wise as serpents and harmless as doves” (Matt. 10:16) and only through God’s grace and Spirit is that possible. Praise God that He is rich in mercy to provide us with all things necessary for life and godliness.
The outline of the sermon from Genesis 11:1-9 is as follows:
I. Heavenly evaluation of earthly wisdom
II. Heavenly mercy through severing judgment
III. Heavenly wisdom brings unity through diversity
