When kids and parents talk about the Bible, the whole family wins! Scroll down to talk about this week’s topic from Kids’ Church.

Cain and Abel

Watch the video above and talk about it with your family. Learn more

Everyone gets jealous, and sometimes it makes you do foolish things. That's exactly what happened to a brother named Cain.

Key Points:

  • Cain and Abel were brother, the children of Adam and Eve.
  • God liked Abel’s gift, but he didn’t like Cain’s. Genesis 4:3-5
  • Because Cain was jealous, he killed his brother Abel. Genesis 4:8
  • God punished Cain for his actions, but he still protected him. Genesis 4:13-16

Memory Verse:

Psalm 145:17 The Lord is righteous in everything he does; he is filled with kindness.

Talk About It
  1. What’s your favorite part of the video? What’s one thing you learned from it?
  2. Have you ever been jealous a friend or sibling? Explain.
  3. What were the names of the two brothers in the story? What were their jobs?
  4. Why was Cain jealous of Abel?
  5. Read James 4:2-3. Why do we become jealous? What do you think is the right way to ask God for things?
