Abel’s Sacrifice

Standard

This post https://krislinatin.wordpress.com/2007/07/02/musings-onunclean-foods-and-abels-sacrifice/

Only got comments about the unclean food, so I was wondering about this question:

First Question

 Do you think the sacrifice of Abel was received by God {and Cains was not}because

A. Abel’s sacrifice was of animal and blood {Cain’s was was fruit from the ground}

or

B. Abel’s sacrifice was good because his heart was in the right place {and Cain’s heart was not ‘right’ with God}?

*Scripture below

Genesis 4: Cain and Abel

    1 Adam lay with his wife Eve, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain. She said, “With the help of the LORD I have brought forth a man.” 2 Later she gave birth to his brother Abel.
      Now Abel kept flocks, and Cain worked the soil. 3 In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the LORD. 4 But Abel brought fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The LORD looked with favor on Abel and his offering, 5 but on Cain and his offering he did not look with favor. So Cain was very angry, and his face was downcast.

    6 Then the LORD said to Cain, “Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast? 7 If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must master it.”
