Cain And Able Essay

510 words - 3 pages

Everybody knows the age-old story of Cain and Abel. I wouldn't say that they were the first rivalry between siblings but they certainly were not the best brothers. Cain and Abel were the sons of Adam and Eve the first people on the Earth. Cain and Abel every year offered what they had at the beginning of the harvest. This was a thing that happened every harvest and was a norm in the lives of Cain of Abel and in their family, but why did God not accept Cain's sacrifice and accepted Abel's?In the Bible it describes only the one harvest and how it ...view middle of the document...

God had explained to Adam and Eve when they sinned that sin only be washed away by blood. God did not except a crop sacrifice because it simply wasn't blood.God would not accept Cain's sacrifice because of his heart and his attitude. God didn't care more about what Cain brought but his mindset when he brought it. Cain's attitude was a key factor in displeasing God. His heart was not in the right place to make a sacrifice. This is seen when God warned Cain and said" You will be accepted if you do what is right. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master" (Gen 4:7). Cain may have brought the very best that he had, but he did it with the wrong attitude. Scriptures show that works without faith is not faith like James 2:17. This could be why god did not accept Cain's offering.God didn't just accept Abel's offering because it was a blood offering , but he accepted it because Abel had the right mindset and did everything for the glory of God. We need to be more like Abel and fight our sin and our earthly desires and not end up like Cain. Cain didn't listen and it ended up as a tragedy. Sin brought the destruction of Cain's life and sin wants to do that to us
