- World Suicide Prevention Day

TOPIC - WHEN NAME-MAKING IS SUICIDAL

Read Genesis 11:1-9

1. And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
2. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.
3. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.

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.
5. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
6. And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
7. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.
8. So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
9. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

MEMORISE: And they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth" (Genesis 11:4)

EXPOSITION
The World Suicide Prevention Day is a day observed by the World Health Organisation (WHO). Let us therefore consider an important way to prevent suicide, most importantly, spiritually.
Name is very important. No wonder God enabled Adam to name everything in the Garden. It is for distinction and recognition. But some are never contented with the name God gives them, or the place where He puts them. This accounts for why either by crook or fluke, they seek for themselves additional names and places. That is discontentment on the part of man.
Did the people of Babel ask God, if it was His plan for them to build the 'Unity Tower'? How many times do we act based on mere imaginations? They were building in arrogance, and their plan, which was totally against God's, could not stand. Have you found out why you had failed businesses, marriage, jobs, appointments, etc.?
Would the people of Babel have had regard for God, if they succeeded? Why do you want to be president, leader of that organisation? God will always scatter any plan outside His will. We must check and rid ourselves of the satanic, (I-will) tendency (cf. Isa. 14:12ff). Whoever exalts himself, will be abased (Jas. 4:6). Learn from Absalom! Wait and consult God before you make any move. Are you currently dissatisfied where you are, contemplating leaving your matrimonial home, or leaving that denomination? Wait for God's will for you, so that you do not end up licking your sours.

PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord, please don't allow me to spoil my name while trying on my own to build it.
2. Father, forgive me of every act of rebellion against You and my fellow men.
3. Lord, deliver Your ministers from pride and rebellion

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: Psalms 119:128 - 121:7; 1 Corint. 14:11 - 14:32
