And He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground. So now you are cursed from the earth, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand.
-Cain gave an offering of the fruit of the ground but Abel gave the firstborn of his flock, a fat one. Cain was angry since God did not respect him & his sacrifice, so he killed his brother Abel. The blood(soul) of Abel cryed out to God from the ground & brought a curse upon Cain where he became a vagabond. By this he lost his inheritance & was exposed to the risk of death.
-In Prov 6:17, God hates hands that shed innocent blood. Lev 17:14, life of all flesh is its blood.
Lord our Father, protect us from all evil & those who come to kill us physically, spiritually, morally, economically or psychologically. Direct us in our giving so that it may always be acceptable to You. Amen
