The problem of Cain

After Hebrews 11:1-4

Each brings a sacrifice,

one, an animal,

the other, fruit.

Why was one more

acceptable than

the other? What 

was wrong?

The one brought

what was carefully

decided and chosen.

The other grabbed from

what was at hand,

without much thought.


The difference was 

the intent,

the care,

the heart.
