“Love is neither maternal nor paternal, It is eternal.” (Ron Ash)
Being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, (Colossians 1:11-13 New International Version)
Why is Cain’s offering rejected by God? This question has been the subject of speculation for thousands of years. However, to me the answer is obvious.
It was not because one offering was of meat and the other of grain. It is biblically stated that such offering are of equal value. The message goes far further than the physical interpretations presented within the pages of the Bible.
You see, it is in the gesture itself. Able gave his offering freely and out of the greatest Love of heart. Yet, Cain gave his offer with regret and resentment. Able gave the best of what he had, All that He was, but Cain gave only what he did not really want. He gave the least of his treasures. This was an empty gesture.

“First you take to sin. Then the sin takes to sin. Finally the sin takes you.” (Ron Ash)
“There are times when it is best to fight fire with Water.” (Ron Ash)
Often we hear the expression fight fire with fire. In the physical, regarding forest fires, it is very prudent. However, in life it is often more effective to fight fire with Water. “He who lives by the sword shall die by the sword.” Therefore, it is best to turn the other cheek or perhaps pick up Our Shield. Like attacks like and what we give we get. In this it becomes plain to me that like forces pitted against like forces will amplify the negative and deviate from the positive.
I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you. (Repeat)
Not long ago I was given an incredible opportunity to put something I heard of to a test. I began to work at a home for teens with severe behavioral issues. I have to tell you the atmosphere was anything but what I am used to. However, with the help of a friend of mine I was able to transform the home in a matter of weeks.
I would concentrate on the image of each boy prior to arriving at the home. As I did this I would repeat, “I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.” I did the same thing in prayer at church. Sometimes I would look at them directly and say it to myself. Less frequently I would say it over there files.
The frequency of bad behavior went down substantially. Restraints were few and far between. Writing consequences was almost a thing of the past. It worked so well that I actually was accused of not doing my job. The old cop and ticket quota had reared its ugly head. I was asked why I was not writing consequences, but my answer was not accepted. That is when I realized it was time to go.
God had already set up my next mission. The resistance I was experiencing was a direct intervention to push me in the direction I needed to go. That very day I went home frustrated, called another home and asked if they were hiring. The administrator replied, “Yes, we just had someone leave today.” God’s timing in impeccable.
