    Verse 4: Hagar began to show disrespect towards Sarah. When we receive a privilege or good happens to us, we want to continue to show respect to other people and not look down on anyone.

    Verse 13
    Whatever name we would choose to give God would say as much about our need as it would about the character of God. It is through our need that we experience God in our deepest way. God watches over what He created. Hagar discovered that in the desert. We need a gentle reminder also. God does see us! Thank you Father for your unfailing love for the world you created and for me also.
