Now the whole world had one language and a common speech.

Genesis 11:1

Communications before Babel must have been far simpler than today. Now there are an estimated 6,500 languages worldwide! Some might call that progress, but as one with extremely limited linguistic skills, I’m not so sure! To be able to talk to and understand anyone and everyone one meets, sounds quite appealing! Which, of course, is what it will be like in heaven, when we will share a common language for the common purpose of singing praises to our great God and King! Imagine adding our voices to the hundreds of millions in that great heavenly choir who will sing, ‘Worthy is the Lamb who was slain’ (Rev.5: 11-12)
