Everyone gets jealous, and sometimes it makes you do foolish things. That's exactly what happened to a brother named Cain.
In today’s lesson, we’re going to learn about two brothers named Cain and Abel. Cain was the older brother and he grew up to be a farmer. Abel grew up to be a shepherd. One day, the brothers were told to bring an offering to God as a way to say “Thank You” for all the ways he had blessed them. Cain didn’t put much thought into his gift. He just grabbed some vegetables he had grown and offered them to the Lord. But, Abel had a different attitude. He looked at all of his sheep and chose the best one to offer to God. God was pleased with Abel’s attitude, and his gift, but was disappointed in Cain. Cain became very jealous of Abel and decided he wanted to hurt him. He took him out into the fields and killed him. Cain was so blinded by his jealousy that he made a terrible mistake. But, God still chose to be kind to Cain. He punished him but he still protected him. So, let’s learn from Cain. Don’t be jealous of other people because jealousy leads you down a bad road. But, even if you get jealous, God will still love and protect you.
