So the Lord said to Cain, why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it – Genesis 4 : 6 – 7.
Abel was a generous man and he received his reward despite the fact that his brother did not allow him to enjoy the blessings of God. Anything we sow, we will surely reap (Galatians 6 : 8) because we cannot sow corn and expect yam, it is very impossible. But this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver – 2 Corinthians 9 : 6 – 7. Instead of Cain taking responsibility of what he has done, he was annoyed of his brother who was not the cause of his act.
We are all created differently whether we like it or not. Abel did not look to what his brother was offering to God but instead he has a generous heart because he knew that all he has achieved was from God so He need to be given the best among the best. We should serve our God with all that He has given to us. Whatever we have, we should not think that it is through our hard work or intelligence but rather we should know that He freely gave us all we have. God does not need any security camera as some of us think for Him to know what we have in mind. If I am hungry, I would not tell you for the world is Mine and all its fullness – Psalm 50 : 12. When we serve God with what He has given to us, we should not think that He is hungry or the Pastor is hungry.
How many of us today do the same to our fellow brethren like Cain? Instead of us taking responsibility for our error, we try to blame innocent one, at times the government, the law, the country who is not responsible for our action. No matter what we do, we should take responsibility for whatever comes. Nobody is perfect but we should always work with the wisdom that God has given to us so that at the end we cannot blame innocent ones.
Everlasting King, I thank You for whom You are and what You have made us to become. Give us the grace to have a generous heart towards You and our fellow brethren and help us to take responsibility of our actions instead of blaming innocent ones in Jesus name.
