“If Cain is avenged sevenfold, then Lamech seventy-sevenfold.” —Genesis 4:24
With sin comes death and a cycle of more sin and more death (Rm 6:23). The first death in the Bible was the murder of Abel by his own brother, Cain. Lamech escalated the conflict, and death began to reign (Rm 5:17).
Prayer: Father, through repentance may sin decrease and You increase in my life
