A Thought for the day – Getting it right!
One of the most intriguing things about the story of Cain and Abel, is that we are not told why Abel’s offering was accepted but Cain’s offering was not. All sorts of ideas have been presented, but the fact remains that the Bible does not actually tell us. All we know is that “the Lord looked with favour on Abel and his offering, but on Cain and his offering he did not look with favour.” (Gen 4:4-5)
It is quite significant really, that we are not told, because at times we can all make mistakes or have wrong attitudes that displease God. If we knew the step by step of Cain’s wrongdoing, we would only avoid that one mistake without examining our attitudes and actions for anything that might distance us from God. Not only that, but we need to be humble and learn from our mistakes, unlike Cain, who chose to get even instead of getting right.
We have all felt like Cain at some time in our lives. Having had our faults pointed out, we feel like getting mad instead of getting right.
So, no matter what our circumstances or our faults, let’s choose to respond in a way that pleases God.
