And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the sky. Let us make a name for ourselves; otherwise, we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.” (Genesis 11:4)

When have you tried to build something by yourself or alongside others with some selfish motivations? What were the consequences?

What rationalizations do you often hear accompany selfishness?

Today’s Challenge: Keep your motives in check. Throughout your day, consider the motivation behind the decisions you make.

Today’s post continues the Summer Scriptures series here at PurePurpose.org.  Each morning through the end of August, you’ll find a brief reading from God’s Word, followed by a question or two (feel free to journal if you want) and a challenge for the day.If you don’t already receive daily emails from PurePurpose.org, simply enter your email address on the site.
