WORD OF THE DAY – Saturday 02 January 2016

The LORD said to Cain, “Why are you angry, and why has your face fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is for you, but you must rule over it.” (Genesis 4:6-7 ESV)

И сказал Господь Каину: почему ты огорчился? и отчего поникло лице твое? если делаешь доброе, то не поднимаешь ли лица? а если не делаешь доброго, то у дверей грех лежит; он влечет тебя к себе, но ты господствуй над ним. (Бытие 4:6-7 Russian)

Almighty God, our dear heavenly Father ~ thank you Lord for the brightness of your love that lifts us higher each day as we consider the warnings in your word that we must continue to do right in the face of temptations. Help us to remember that you showed your grace to Cain, even after the sin he committed against his own brother. Give us a greater sense of forgiveness so that we will not hold back forgiving someone who may have done us wrong. Help us to remember that you hold us responsible for the choices we make – whether good or bad. Give us wisdom to choose the right road that is the way of Christ our Lord. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
