People are beautiful. People are also beasts. Ultimately, we do not get to experience one without the other in relationships with people. In the book of Genesis, we encounter components of relationships that reveal both the beauty and the beast of people. These stories of Scripture teach us how to live with both through lives of faith. In the story of Cain and Abel, we learn that comparison has the power to make us better or it has the power to make us bitter. God will use the relationships in our lives to reveal what we need to change and what we need to be content with. In the end, we all must learn to live with the mark of God’s beauty placed on us through the love of Jesus Christ.
