Today we talked about Cain and Abel's offering... Why was Abel's offering more acceptable? I thought it might have had something to do with the fact that Abel was offering up what God had given him and Cain was offering up something he had worked for; but that didn't quite make sense to me. Why would God not accept something just because the person had worked for it? This makes it seem that no matter what Cain offered, it could never be acceptable because he was not a keeper of the fields.
