Use and Dump-2

Genesis 21:10 “Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, [even] with Isaac.”
…From yesterday…
What baffles me is the adjectival she used for her in our focal scripture, once she got what she wanted. Sarah referred to Hagar as “…this bondwoman…”
Our mother Sarah gave birth to her own son Isaac, and Hagar the “maid”, “clan and family” suddenly became “a bondwoman”; how sad! Most humans seem to have ingratitude built into their DNA.
The child she promised to care for as her own suddenly became the son of a slave or bondwoman. Hear it in the message translation:
Genesis 21:10 “She told Abraham, “Get rid of this slave woman and her son. No child of this slave is going to share inheritance with my son Isaac!””
Sarah didn’t stop at name calling, she insisted that Abraham should “get rid” of them. How tides can suddenly change! Men easily forget their promises and pledges as soon as they get what they want. I am sure if Abraham didn’t agree to send them away, Sarah wouldn’t just make life difficult for Abraham, she would made it worse for Hagar and Ishmael. She could hurt or even kill them!
Beloved, the only personality that can promise and never fail is God. Man will use you and dump you. They easily forget that you left your own dreams and vision to help them fulfil theirs.
I want to believe some men must have been “eyeing” Hagar. She too must have been dreaming of when she would have a settled home and probably become free from the yoke of slavery.
She must have had her own plans, but when her master came calling, she dropped all that to embrace her master’s vision. But, unfortunately, she was thrown out with almost nothing. Hagar was badly used and dumped. Sarah took away her innocence, turned her into a divorcee, made her son fatherless and made both of them homeless.
To be continued…
