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).

His bad example warns us to:

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