July 29 Genesis 4, The cause of the most grief
Most people are familiar with the story of Cain and Abel, and most don't understand much of it. There's a lot of myths and stories of Cain having never died as his punishment but scripture does not say that. I was taught for years the reason that Abel's offering was accepted was because it was a blood sacrifice, but I don't think so. I believe it's because he gave the first, believing that there would be more and Cain brought a portion after harvest. So I think it was a faith thing, in any case I'm looking at the reason for the discord, the thing which caused so much trouble, it's jealousy, and jealousy still causes more grief to people today than anything else.
