Genesis 4: 6-7 (NASB and the Message)

"Then the LORD said to Cain,
'Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen?
If you do well, will not your countenance be lifted up?
And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door;
and its desire is for you,
but you must master it.' "

"God spoke to Cain:
'Why this tantrum? Why the sulking?
If you do well, won't you be accepted?
And if you don't do well, sin is lying in wait for you, ready to pounce;
it's out to get you,
you've got to master it.' "

I've read this passage many times, but somehow this time, this stuck out more than normal.

Be killing Sin or it will be killing you!
God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in times of trouble.
He who began a good work in you, will carry it to completion.
So we run the race with confidence!! :)
