“Blessed are the Cains”
While the famous story of Cain and Abel is about the first murder committed in scripture, it is also about how humanity has responded when we've been punished by God. Cain cries out to God, reminding God that he will be lost without any protection or care. In the process, we see that God welcomes our cries for aid. So blessed are the Cains who cry out to God.
