Don’t be Cain

This is the message that you heard from the beginning: love each other. Don’t behave like Cain, who belonged to the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he kill him? He killed him because his own works were evil, but the works of his brother were righteous. Don’t be surprised, brothers and sisters, if the world hates you. We know that we have transferred from death to life, because we love the brothers and sisters. The person who does not love remains in death. Everyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer, and you know that murderers don’t have eternal life residing in them. This is how we know love: Jesus laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. But if someone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but refuses to help—how can the love of God dwell in a person like that? (1 John 3:11-17, CEB)

Cain killed his brother out of jealousy.

Life is a gift given to all of us, and sometimes it seems like other people get all the good stuff while we slog through the crap. And sometimes life isn’t fair.

A lot of times though the things we say are weighing us down are things we might get a little out of context and make bigger than they are. I’m not trying to say bad things don’t happen, but attitude is a lot in life. The world and people put down those who seem to have it better and easier and we think if we hold them down that somehow their luck will come to us. and that isn’t how this works. Cain didn’t get what Abel had by killing him, Cain got punished for taking a life.

Don’t be Cain and think that killing your Abel will change things for the better because it won’t.

Walk and journey through your life and make the best of it and know that you don’t walk alone.

God is always with you.

Love the world as you are loved.

Loving People. Loving God.
