Devotion on Genesis 4 - Giving God Our Best

Why did God look with favor on Abel's offering, but not Cain's? The Scripture says that Abel brought his offering from the firstborn of his flock, indicating he brought the best of what he had. Cain only brought "some" of the produce he had grown, and probably not the best of his crop.

When are you tempted to not give God your best in life?

What makes you want to give God your best?

Notice that Abel was perfectly happy when he gave his best to God. Cain, on the other hand, was angry, depressed, and prone to commit more sin. One sins leads to another. This shows us the difference in attitude between someone who is serving God with their whole heart and someone who isn't. When you serve God, you're happy. When you don't, you're not. Which would you rather have, God's approval and joy in your life, or God's disapproval and inner turmoil?

Commit today, and every day, to giving God your best in all things and know that He will smile upon you.
