  • 9:6 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.

  • True to this century, what is really amazing is the fact that in this world we still don’t care about the possible consequences of shedding a man’s blood. Even today people are willing to shed blood of the brethren for the sake of power, pride, lust, revenge and all that God knew to be the elements within his universe. How is it that there is no remorse? Why is it that there is no choice? What has become of today’s world?

  • 9:7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.

  • God gave us the liberty, a choice a freedom to do him proud. He chose to give us the power, pride, lust and all the elements and asked us to use it at will to bring forth abundantly in the earth. He gave us the ability to multiply and spread the joy and his name throughout the entire earth. But the real question is, what did we choose to do with this power we had?

  • 11:4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

  • We dreamt of reaching the heaven, where the almighty lived in peace and we still dream of that every one of us. We are not satisfied at what we have and what the Lord has given us. We just want to have it all. We feel shame for being on the very own soil that he gave us with so much of heart. We want to ignore our present and move into a future where we seek higher joys. The real question is, will we find what is most important when we reach that height.

  • 11:5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.

  • The most ironic thing about this is that when we wanted to go to the heights and conquer the world above. God bowed down to his creation and showed his humility and decided to look upon his sons and their creation.

  • 11:7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

  • The today’s world may not understand each other’s language yet there are so many things that reach out to each other in this universe. The music, the love, the sports, the knowledge and God himself.
