Do you realize that everyone in your community falls into one of three categories? By using the Old Testament as a way to think about people today, we see that everyone is somewhere between an "Egyptian" and an "Israelite."
So what are these three categories? The first group is made up of the "Egyptians." The second group consists of those "Israelites who are still living in Egypt." And the third group consists of the "Israelites who have left Egypt" and are headed toward the promised land.
