God made so many different kinds of people with their own unique skills, language, activities, and lifestyle. When He scattered the people who built the Tower of Babel, He knew where they would go. He knew the hardships they would face, and He placed them around the world for His specific purposes.

You must never forget that no matter how big the world seems, and no matter how small you feel, God is bigger and He has everything under control. He made you for a specific purpose and put you exactly where you are for a reason.
