“Listen, dear ones— get this straight; O Israel, don’t take this lightly. Don’t take up with strange gods, don’t worship the latest in gods. I’m God, your God, the very God who rescued you from doom in Egypt, then fed you all you could eat, filled your hungry stomachs.” – Psalm 81:8-10

First of all, it is a shame this story is so often forgotten by the ancient Israelites. Second, this shows God as a deity who is not only concerned about history but willing to participate in it (as we later see with the birth of Jesus). Above all, we are called to be witnesses of Christ. So, what has God rescued you from?
