The story continues:
The tale of Cain and Abel is one we’ve all probably heard . . . but have we really? They lived on this earth. Walked the same broken ground that we walk; had the same desires, the same fears, the same envy, the same hate. While the sun is coming up over God’s good world, sin looms in the valley, but it cannot be hidden. God always knows, and His punishment will be just. Christ, however, has made our intercession; the ground soaking up His blood as it soaked up Abel’s so long ago. For all of our moments of Cain-like rage and pseudo-power. Go against Cain’s lack of shame and repent, with humility and praise for the God who gives. Take Christ’s freedom and run.
