I am sitting over here feeling really sorry for Abel. He did right in the sight of God and got to die, which doesn’t seem like such a reward to me. Yes we all want to Go to heaven and be with Jesus but normally death is considered punishment...Was Abel’s only purpose in life to teach Cain this lesson? It’s hard to see this as rewarding #poorabel #genesis4

It's the will of God for every one to have something to do in this world. Hebrews chapter 11 says; "Able being dead, yet speaketh. He tells the heinous guilt of murder, and warns us to stifle the first risings of wrath, and teaches us that persecution must be expected by the righteous. So, it seems to me that Abel fulfilled his God-given mission...by his death.

We do not always know why our children sometimes die before we do. Is it the mercy of the Lord? Is there something for us to learn? Does He want us to move up another notch in the ladder of faith? He said to his disciples, "suffer the little children to come unto me for such is the kingdom of heaven". Our heart bleeds for them. We are only human. But, God's view of death is so much different than ours. He knows the right time. And, it is always the time that fits into His merciful ways.

Hi Kaitlin,

Your question regarding Abel is similar to Job's concerning himself: "Why do the righteous suffer?" Even though, in the end, Job confessed that God was sovereign and just in His actions, that does not mean that everyone else is. Sometimes bad people perpetrate bad things against good people. And the bad people don't always face justice in this life, and the good people don't always receive justice in this life. But we are promised that there is coming a day when the Righteous Judge, Jesus Christ the Lord, will sit upon His judgment seat, and this is when all accounts will be settled. Until then, we must abide in faith believing that God does reward our righteousness in so many ways while we're here, and so much more when we see Him face to face! :)

Rev. David Corbitt Interesting comparing different characters to one another. I never think to do that. I have a hard time seeing past and through the actual text I’m reading. I also forget that what happens in this life to us does not matter. The ultimate reward is in heaven.
