Giving our best to God
Gen 4:2-14 ESV
(2) And again, she bore his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, and Cain a worker of the ground.
(3) In the course of time Cain brought to the LORD an offering of the fruit of the ground,
(4) and Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat portions.
And the LORD had regard for Abel and his offering,
(5) but for Cain and his offering he had no regard.
So Cain was very angry, and his face fell.
(6) The LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry, and why has your face fallen?
(7) If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is for you, but you must rule over it."
(8) Cain spoke to Abel his brother. And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel and killed him.
(9) Then the LORD said to Cain, "Where is Abel your brother?" He said, "I do not know; am I my brother's keeper?"
(10) And the LORD said, "What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood is crying to me from the ground.
(11) And now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand.
(12) When you work the ground, it shall no longer yield to you its strength. You shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth."
(13) Cain said to the LORD, "My punishment is greater than I can bear.
(14) Behold, you have driven me today away from the ground, and from your face I shall be hidden. I shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me."
Giving God our best
This comes from an inner attitude of love toward God and a wanting to give God your all.
Our attitude, our inner desire compels us to “do things” we are physical and spiritual beings living in a material or physical world and our inner being or attitude manifests in the physical our doing something.
Your in love with your wife - we tend to express ourselves in physical terms. My wife knows I love her I know she knows I love her yet why do I do
