Genesis 4 - Key

Last time I studied this chapter, I saw how we, like Cain, should appeal to the Lord for mercy, and, despite our own unworthiness, He'll hear us and make a way for us to be saved. This time, I saw how Cain's sin couldn't be hidden.

v10

And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.

It's easy to think that we're just doing some private thing off by ourselves, that doesn't effect anybody else, and nobody else will even know. Sin isn't like that. We can't even keep it covered up forever by lying about it.

Application

Before I do something I know is wrong, I'll remember to consider,

This is going to be known,
This is going to be shown, and,
This is going to have an effect.
