CAIN'S GIFT

From the July 1938 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The nature of the gift that Abel offered Through God's approval stands revealed as good; And, since Love knoweth no respect of persons, Cain could have won praise also, if he would. Had he, in preparation for his giving, Put selfless love and pure devotion first, He had not listened to that envious hatred Which stained his record with a deed accursed.
