The Tower of Babel

 1 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 As people moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there.

 3 They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”

 5 But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6 The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

 8 So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 That is why it was called Babel—because there the LORD confused the language of the whole world. From there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth.

In this story from the Old Testament, the people had true unity and a common goal.  They were all working together in the same place, with the same vision.  God himself knew “nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them,” as long as they worked together with a common vision.

Our common purpose at Leaders Credit Union is to serve our members.  Nothing will be impossible for us as long as we all take hold of this purpose and work together to ensure we each serve our members at every opportunity.

What is the “common purpose” at your workplace? 

(Fun Fact: This bible story is where we get the English word “Babble” – to say something rapidly and incoherently)
