In Genesis 11, the people came together to build a city with a tower that stretched into the heavens. Their misguided motive: to “make a name for ourselves” (Gen. 11:4).
Today, it is quite popular to make a name for yourself–even within some Christian teachings. In this wallpaper, Count Nikolaus Ludwig von Zinzendorf, theologian and bishop of the Moravian Church, reminds us to make a name for Jesus and be content to be forgotten. The photo was captured by the talented Julia Starr.
“Preach the gospel, die, and be forgotten.”Count Zinzendorf
