My opinion for this is that jealousy

Cain’s gift was not even something he would have kept and Abel chose something he loved dearly. The sacrifices made between the two clearly shows how selfless and selfish Cain and Abel are. Sacrifices are made when

    most infamous is that of Cain and Abel. But after centuries of being communicated away from the explicit text‚ the story of Cain and Abel has been distorted to characterize its subjects to moralistic extremes. The notoriety of Cain and Abel can be attributed to its rather severe content. In no more than sixteen verses‚ the story of Cain and Abel is relayed with unforgiving conciseness.
