Cain Provides an Example to Avoid

We learn 4 important truths from the bad example of Cain. And we should take these truths to heart. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible

Cain is an infamous example of the self-centered life:
Scripture says Cain was only interested in personal profit (Jude 1:11), and he was jealous of anyone who actually loved God enough to live righteously (1 John 3:12).

To avoid Cain's errors:

    1. We must understand that faith is not simply outward religious acts. We shouldn't do things simply to "look good" (Matthew 6:1; Matthew 15:1-9). 

    2. We must carefully listen to and obey the warnings God gives in His Word (James 1:22).

    3. We must believe God when He says we will reap what we sow (Galatians 6:7).

    4. We must repent genuinely (James 4:7-10).

      Christians don't have the spirit of Cain because he belonged to Satan (1 John 3:12), but we can exhibit some "Cainish" behavior if we aren't daily examining ourselves.
