"Then men began to call upon the name of the Lord."
 
Following a short list of of Cain's children, we find included at the very tail end of the chapter, at its break, a notation telling us of a time when men began to call upon the Lord. So encouraging this bit of information  that God was still in the picture. Man, though fallen, yet still yearning His touch, His fellowship, His filling. Somehow knowing that it wasn't his hard work or his accomplishments mixed with a bit of good luck or good fortune that brought satisfaction, but wholeness could only come in a relationship with the true and living God. Men today, still long for fulfillment that can only found in Jesus Christ. Today in all circumstances, whether good, bad or uncertain, discouraging and even scary, we can all choose to call upon the name of the Lord, and seek His perfect plan in all things.
