Romans 1:28-32; Galatians 5:20; Philippians 2:3-4; 2 Timothy 3:1-2; James 3:16
Put to death therefore what is earthly in you
Cain’s offering was rejected by God and Abel’s received a blessing. Cain’s offering was not given with a heart devoted to God. Cain was focused on pleasing himself and not God and his offering was rejected. Even when God gave Cain a chance to repent, he chose not to, showing that his heart was not for God. Our sin causes us to be selfish and focused on ourselves.
Everything was perfect in the world until we broke it. When humanity chose to sin, the world that was once perfect became messed up and broken. Sin is ultimately a rejection of God Himself. Because of sin bad things happen, we experience all types of pain, and death has come into the world. All of creation groans and wishes that the world be perfect and good like it was before.
