Genesis 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.

These are people who are trying to live independent from God and they’re trying to make a name for themselves.

God never intended for us to make a name for ourselves. Through our belief and obedience to the Holy Spirit, He’ll make our name great. In Genesis 12:2 (Amplified) it says, “And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you abundantly, And make your name great (exalted, distinguished); And you shall be a blessing [a source of great good to others].

We don’t need to hustle, trying out one business venture after another, attempting to build our brand and legacy. If a brand is going to be built, it should be built by walking down the path God already cleared for us.
