Soon, Hagar and Abraham had a baby boy and named him Ishmael. But he was not a part of God’s plan. Few days later after this, Sarah had a son just as God promised as she named him Isaac which means laughter. Sarah had laughed once when God said that she would have a baby. Once Isaac was born, Sarah became jealous of Hagar and her son.
One day, Abraham threw a party for young Isaac where Sarah heard Ishmael making fun of Isaac. She became very angry. She told Abraham, “Send Hagar and her son away. I don’t want Ishmael to share my Isaac’s inheritance.” This made Abraham very upset. Ishmael was his son too.
God told Abraham that it’s okay to send Hagar and Ishmael away. “Isaac is the promised son,” God said. “But I promise to watch over Hagar and Ishmael and even build the nation Ishmael’s descendants because he is your son too.”
The next day, Abraham got up early in the morning and gathered food and water for Hagar to take as she and Ishmael left. He was sad to send them away. Hagar and Ishmael wandered for days and had nowhere to go. Soon, the water they had brought ran out. Hagar left Ishmael sitting in the shade of the bush and walked a short distance away from him.

Suddenly, a well appeared in front of Hagar which was full of water.She filled the jar and gave Ishmael a drink.
