NIV Once-A-Day Bible

Day 2 of 21

Genesis 4:9

“Am I my brother’s keeper?” Cain asks. God’s answer throughout the rest of Scripture is an unequivocal yes. God intended for us to be social beings — ​to love, care for and protect each other. The mark of any society is how well it cares for those who cannot care for themselves. A selfish society cares well for those it values but does not care well for those it does not. A society that reflects God’s kingdom does well for the least of its members. God’s people are called to do good to all people, regardless of race, gender or social position. In many ways, we are our “brother’s keeper.”
