Cain vs. Abel

The electrician said he had the best job in the world. He said that for thousands of years there were no light bulbs, radio, TV, washing machines and hundreds of other items that make are lives better. He also said that God knew about electricity, but it took man thousands of years putting together the pieces to the puzzle to finally unlock the secrets. Why did God not tell man all about it and save all the time it took to solve the mystery of electricity? Because life was to be a struggle for man so he would come to appreciate all that God gave Adam and Eve, that they rejected. They had the perfect utopia yet they wanted more, they wanted to eat the fruit from the tree of knowledge to be God like.
Banished to our world, they were now subject to evil and the harshness of human life. God said “Your eye will be opened” meaning they would see and experience the evil nature of mankind. The story of Cain and Abel is a story of man’s human nature. Able loves God. He works hard. He cares for his wife and children. He prospers. Cain is lazy. He lies, cheats, and steals. He does not love God. He grows to envy his brother’s success, and one day in a fit of jealousy and rage, he murders his brother. This story tells us the two sides of man’s human nature. We live in a world full of those who are like Cain and Abel. The question is which one are you?
It is easy to be a Cain. It is hard work to be an Abel. Life on earth will forever be a struggle. Those who struggle to be good, to be an Able, are mocked and ridiculed by those who are a Cain. So, which one are you?

Super Bowl Mania
February 02, 2015
Super Bowl Mania Well the spectacle is over. The Patriots were a class act. The Seahawks were spoiled children. The halftime show was glitter with songs that we’ll never remember, but a least the 1950’s bathing suits were more fitting for family viewing. The commercials were ok and everyone loves ...
