-God Liked Abel’s Offering but Not Cain’s?

Q:  Gen 4: 3-5 God looked favorable upon Abel’s offering but not Cain’s. Why? It doesn’t seem fair to me. A:  Actually verse 7 gives us a clue. Cain was really not trying to do what was right but just trying to get by. Verse 3 says that he merely brought some fruit as an […]
