Better Than Abel

Whenever I negotiate with God
I put this card on the table
I may not be as pure as Jesus
But at least, I’m better than Abel

I try to be faithful at work Lord
Otherwise, my life is a little unstable
Don’t judge me by the women I sleep with
You gave the good looks to Abel

I bring you expensive gifts Lord
Unlike that Biblical fable
When You asked me where is my brother
My answer; ‘Do You inquire of Abel?’

My advice to all who will listen
God won’t be fooled or finagled
But it doesn’t hurt to try this
Just tell Him, you’re better than Abel

2 Corinthians 10:12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Romans 3:23 KJV

And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
Genesis 4:8 KJV
