Hagar the slave girl runs away. God sends her back with the instruction to submit humbly. This must have been incredibly difficult. Not only had her masters' sins caused her to be pregnant, but had caused this rift of resentment between them. She despised her mistress, and her mistress despised her. Now she had to not only go back to her, but to submit to her authority over her. But God would not forget her for this act of obedience. He blessed her.
