Abel became a keeper of flocks, and Cain a tiller of the soil.
In the course of time Cain brought an offering to the LORD
from the fruit of the soil,
while Abel, for his part,
brought one of the best firstlings of his flock.
The LORD looked with favor on Abel and his offering,
but on Cain and his offering he did not.
Somehow I don’t think this was the intended message, but the first thing that came to mind when I read this was…
GOD LIKES MEAT.
Maybe Cain had tried to give him some figs. Bad mistake, Cainy-boy.
