As I looked into the Hebrew I came across a verse that is familiar to us and uses two of the key words from this verse. The result is a curse instead of a blessing.
(Genesis 11:4 NAS77) And they said, "Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name; lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth."This is the “Tower” (4026) of Babel. This is the reason for building it. It was to give them a “name” (8034). They were concerned about their own importance. We are to be different. We are to put our trust in the name of the Lord. We are not to put our efforts into building a name for ourselves.
So? What is my motivation? Am I doing what I do to make a name for myself or am I doing things to lift up the name of Jesus? Others may not know, but we do. I would prefer a strong tower to a lot of confusion.
