What: Adam and Eve had two sons. Cain and Abel made offerings for the Lord. God did not respect / accept Cain’s offering. Cain became angry & killed Abel. Cain receives consequences from God for his sin. Lamech, Cain’s family line, murders too.
Summary – Sin is affecting the lives of the first family.
Lessons to Guide Your Life:
Example – Sin affects your life and the lives of those around you.
Truth – Sin demands consequences
Lesson – Jealously (like Cain) breeds sin
Why – To reveal sin from the beginning. To reveal the affects of sin.
Character of God: Sovereign, Just, gives consequences for sin, merciful (protected Cain from being killed)
Direction For Your Life:
Pray – Lord help me not to sin for it effects those around me.
Encouraging Thought: God is merciful. He still blesses in the midst of sin.
Conclusion: Don’t allow jealousy in your heart. Anger by way of jealously can lead to murder / division of family.
Wanting / desiring what someone else has is jealousy / discontent. I need to be content where the Lord has me and rejoice with others.

What am I jealous of?
Other marriages, other connected families.
How can I turn the negative feeling into good?
Focus on the Lord.
