My Offering (Gen 4:4-5)

Updated: Feb 14, 2022

If we were in Cain and Abel's shoes, would God approve of our offering, or have "no regard for it?"

In Genesis 4:3-5 we see God approved of Abel's offering but not Cain's.

Of course the next thought is, "what was wrong with Cain's offering?"

We can guess. But we actually get the answer in Hebrews:

Hebrews 11:4 "It was by faith that Abel brought a more acceptable offering."

So this reminds me that I need to make sure whether I am doing my daily Bible reading or something else that I do it with a sincere heart of gratitude and worship, not just going through the motions to get a check mark in the box.

Admittedly, sometimes I find myself just working to get the check mark. But that won't please God any more than Cain's offering did.

Dear Lord, let my heart be focused on serving you with an attitude of worship in all things each day. Amen.
