Hagar was an Egyptian slave acquired by Abraham to be a handmaiden for his wife Sarah.
Her life story hinged on the insecurities of Abraham and Sarah. They journeyed to Egypt due to a famine in their land. Had they trusted in God to provide, they would have never entered Egypt nor acquired Hagar. Had they trusted God when He said He would send them a son, Sarah would have never given Hagar to Abraham as a second wife, and he would have never agreed to it. Had Sarah not been riddled with jealousy when Hagar conceived and grew prideful, Sarah wouldn’t have mistreated and abused her, causing Hagar to flee for her life.
Hagar was a victim, caught up in circumstances out of her control. She was thrust in the bondage of a godly couple who put her in an awkward situation, and then blamed her when things didn’t turn out the way they expected.
