Cain and Abel – Respect
Before you begin this Bible study, If you have never believed in Jesus Christ as your Savior, John 3:16 tells us: “ For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, shall not perish, but have eternal life.’ Simply have faith that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins and you will have eternal life and be saved. If you have believed in Jesus Christ as your Savior; then 1 John 1:9 tells us; “If you confess your sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Simply privately tell God the Father your sins to be filled with God the Holy Spirit and He will teach you Bible truth.

Promise Memory Verses
“So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished.” Romans 13:2
Last week we talked about getting ready for back to school. Of course you will most likely need crayons, folders and a new back pack. I’ll bet your feet grew, so you will perhaps need a trip to the shoe store.
The most important thing you should do to be ready for school is exactly what you are doing right now, which is learning Bible Doctrine. School may be a bit unusual this year because of Covid-19, so it will be more important than ever to obey God’s word.
Last week, we saw that Cain didn’t listen to God. He did what he wanted to do instead; he wasn’t a happy person. Cain stayed angry and jealous because God accepted Abel’s sacrifice, but not his.
The more he thought about it, the angrier he became. Both brothers
went for a walk out into the fields, and then something horrible happened! Cain attacked Abel and killed him! Nothing like this had ever taken place before.
God was aware of exactly what occurred, and asked Cain where Abel was. Cain’s attitude was snarky with God, and he pretended like he had no idea. Murdering someone is a very serious crime! God sent Cain away from his home and he was never allowed to farm again.
God never wants you to go around sulking, stomping your feet, or throwing a fit when you are told to do something. If you do this, you are out of fellowship with God, and you need to rebound.
God wants you to think about the other kids in your class, and obey the rules. If you are told to wear a mask, then you need follow directions so that you help keep your classmates safe. If you are supposed to social distance, don’t complain, just obey and respect your teacher. That is doing things God’s way.
I have an idea, to help you remember to listen to and obey your teachers. Lets’ take some pictures that you can look at that remind you about following the rules God made.
Oh look, there is a robin eating a worm. Even birds have to obey God. When was the last time you saw a robin swimming across the river?
Outside the window are some playful squirrels running around in circles and dashing up a tree. Even squirrels have to obey God. When was the
last time you saw a squirrel driving a UPS truck delivering packages?
Corrie the cat is purring while lying on top of a pillow. Even cats have to obey God, when the last time you saw a cat baking cookies or barking like a dog?
Before you go to bed snap a picture of the moon, God gave it the job of lighting the nighttime sky; when was the last time, it got bored and went swimming in the lake? Even the moon has to obey God.
