Divisions:

1
10:1-32
The genealogy and settlements of Noah’s sons
Principle:
(Every name is in this list for a reason)
God carefully crafts every man’s ancestry and descendants.
2
11:1-9
The Tower of Babel and scattering of the people
Principle:
When God tells His people to do something, He means it.
Man’s plans are nothing in comparison to God’s plans.
3
11:10-28
The descendants of Shem to Abram
Principle:
God carefully crafts every man’s ancestry and descendants.
4
11:29-32
The beginning of Abram’s story
Principle:
Relocation is the very definition of a new beginning.

 

Subject Sentence:

God scatters Noah’s descendants including Abram.

 

Aim (Christian and Non-Christian):

TCMAT know that God’s plan WILL prevail.  People do not have the power to thwart God’s plan.

 

Application:

1
How did Noah’s descendants obey God’s command to be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth?
(Why do these genealogies mention a separation based on language if the language wasn’t confused, yet?)
2
How did Noah’s descendants disobey God’s command to be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth?
In what way have you observed God thwarting man’s plans so that His will is done?
3
In what ways has your ancestry affected who you are spiritually?
What other affects has your ancestry had on your life?
What deliberate action will you take to have a positive influence for Christ on future generations?
4
What is the beginning of your story?
If you’ve ever had to relocate, how has that affected your life?
If you’ve never had to relocate, how has that affected your life?
What new beginnings has God crafted for your life?
