Scary Bible Stories – Gen. 4:1-11
Disapproval — Cain‘s offering lacked faith, and it met with God’s disapproval.
Envy – Cain suffered from envy when he wanted the effect without the effort. Sound familiar?
Attach – The very brother who has “got your back” may be the one who stabs you in the back. So Cain killed Able.
Hysteria – All too late Cain had second thoughts. “What if I turn my back?” We could avoid so much hysteria if only we thought of the welfare of our brothers and sisters.
Exemplary story: An old nursery rhyme explains that for want of a horse shoe nail a kingdom was lost. For want of faith a life was lost, the life of righteous Able. Don’t let your lack of faith bring you to ruin.
