No, you probably can't. But that's exactly what this stepmom said to her own husband about his son. I guess she was anxious her son would be short changed in the family will. Her exact words were, “Get rid of him.” How awful. That's exactly what Sarah said to Abraham about his son, Ishmael. And it greatly distressed Abraham. Okay, let's learn from this. Jealousy and insecurity divide, devour, and destroy family relationships. Pray to get rid of jealousy and ask God for an open, gracious heart.
