Cain’t & Able – A Tale of Two Siblings

The Brew Is A Musing

Cain’t & Able: A Tale Of Two Siblings
“The Lord looked with favor on Abel…but on Cain…He did not look with favor.” (Genesis 4:4a and 5a, NIV)

Begin 2

In many respects, the imagery created by Charles Dickens in the opening lines of his book A Tale of Two Cities is similar to the images one might expect as they consider the lives of our two sons – lives of marked contrast.

He was the best of sons, he was the worst of sons, his was an age of wisdom, his was an age of foolishness, his was an epoch of belief, his was an epoch of incredulity, his life a spring of hope, his life a winter of despair, he had everything before him, he had nothing before him.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.

One thought on “Cain’t & Able – A Tale of Two Siblings”

  1. Thanks for sharing this Steve. You and your wife prove that the beauty and sanctity of life is not measured in terms of worldly “usefulness.” Life is something far more–a gift from God (albeit not one we always understand). Thank you for knowing that and for sharing it with your readers.
