When people think they are so smart and can outdo other people, what they fail to realize is, God will cause them not to look smart at all. What they really are doing is only giving God the opportunity to reveal His power, and show that He can outsmart the person, and cause them to actually look foolish in front of others.
Genesis 11:4-9 says “Then they said to each other, “Let’s build a city and a tower for ourselves, whose top will reach high into the sky. We will become famous. Then we will not be scattered over all the earth.” The Lord came down to see the city and the tower that the people had built. The Lord said, “Now, these people are united, all speaking the same language. This is only the beginning of what they will do. They will be able to do anything they want. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not be able to understand each other.” So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. The place is called Babel since that is where the Lord confused the language of the whole world. So the Lord caused them to spread out from there over the whole world.” (NCV)
