    Cain’s insolent and arrogant response to God’s question is a sign of his inward, unacknowledged guilt. This is always the way of guilt—to disclaim responsibility. Cain replies, My brother? What have I to do with my brother?  
    Am I my brother’s keeper? Is it my responsibility to know where my brother is? The hypocrisy of that is most evident.

  • I am a marketing person’s dream.
    Slap a clever label on a $1 tube of lip gloss or bottle of shampoo, especially if you use a trendy font and especially especially if the name of the product is all in lowercase lettering, and I won’t think twice about paying $20 for it.
    Take grace, for example.
    Made by a company called philosophy, “amazing grace” is the name of their shampoo. (They also offer “hope” in a jar.)

  • One of nature’s beloved scenes is twilight when the moon and the first star of the night appears against a darkening blue sky.
    Most of us probably learned to wish upon that star: “Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight...”
    Both my granddaughters are very empathetic. I imagine them looking at that lone star and feeling sorry for it; feeling sorry that it is up there all by itself.  

  • It was a warm summer night in a town near Washington, D.C.
    A group of friends sat around a backyard table eating dinner when a young man with a gun appeared and interrupted the dinner party, according to a 2016 NPR story.
    “Give me your money or I’m going to start shooting,” he said, pointing the gun at one of the women.
    The people believed him; however, no one had any money on them.
    So, they started talking to the man, first trying to play on his guilt: “What would your mother think about you doing this?”
