Today’s Scripture Reading: Gen. 4:1-5:32, 1 Chronicles 1:1-4, Gen. 6:1-22
Heavenly Father, thank you for recording the words You spoke to Cain:
“Why are you so angry?” the Lord asked Cain. “Why do you look so dejected? You will be accepted if you do what is right. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master.” —Genesis 4:6-7
Help us to go on the defensive and subdue sin and be its master instead of living weak, depressed lives that have no eternal impact on our families, communities or world.
Jesus, help us to realize we are our brother’s keeper. Lord, we can’t make a difference in the whole world, but we can make a difference for one or two. Holy Spirit, speak loudly; speak over the noise of this world and let us know who we are to reach for Your Kingdom. Keep us awake at night for our lost and hurting world.
Lord, forgive of our sins and shortcomings! Make us like You Jesus!
In Jesus’ Name. Amen and Amen!
