Passage: Genesis 4:1-12
1. Notice that since the fall in Eden, sin has furthered its effect and manifested itself in a new form. When God tells Cain to “do what is right” (v. 7), what does this tell you about man’s source of anger? The strength of anger? God’s way of soothing anger?
2. Why did God approached Cain the way he did? Why protect Cain? In this story of man in exile, where do you see the cycle of sin, judgment and mercy repeated from chapter 3?
