Henry Neufeld spoke on “Raising Cain” based on Genesis 4:1-16. After the sacrifice but before the murder, God didn’t explain why Cain’s offering wasn’t acceptable, but simply admonished him to do what is right. Are we too blinded by jealousy, envy or anger to do well in God’s eyes? As a model for merciful justice rather than “eye-for-an-eye” punishment under the Law of Moses, Cain’s banishment ended with his settlement East of Eden. If we truly live in a state of grace, can we do what the Lord requires of us: to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God (Micah 6:8)? [KH]
