- Read Genesis 11:1–9. What is the attitude of the first Babylonian people? Where do you see this attitude at work in the world today?

- The “evil ways” listed by Jeremiah, and the other prophets of the Bible, center around the Hebrew people’s worship of things other than God and lack of compassion and fair treatment of others. How are we as Christians tempted to do the same in our own time? Give some examples.
- Read Daniel 1. What can we learn about Daniel’s attitude and character? What about God’s?
