God wants us to rely on Him and put our trust in Him. Abraham, our Father in faith, hedged on God’s promise, and had a son by the slave girl, Hagar. The boy’s name was Ishmael. In today’s first reading, we hear how Abraham drove out Hagar and Ishmael at the request of his wife, Rebecca. We hear how God took care of them in the desert. Isaac, Sarah’s son, became the heir to the promise. You see, God always keeps his promises. Do you trust in God?
