He Did Not Respect Cain

Many are familiar with the story of Cain and Abel in Genesis. The first 2 sons from Adam and Eve. Both gave an offering to the Lord. God accepted Abel’s offering, but did not respect Cain.

In Genesis 4:3-5  it states, “And in the process of time it came to pass that Cain brought an offering of the fruit of the ground to the Lord. Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat. And the Lord respected Abel and his offering, but He did not respect Cain and his offering.”

Many people get this powerful message confused. What was it that God did not respect about Cain? The answer is simple — his heart. Abel gave his first and best to God because that is was God deserves. Cain gave something less, not worthy of God. The same goes for us. God deserves and expects your first and best to be given to Him. The “first and best” will be different for all people, but it should all be the best we have to offer because God deserves it.

I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
