The time of the judges was a period when the Israelites went about doing what was right in their own eyes, then crying unto the Lord because of the oppression they were experiencing wanting deliverance. "Nevertheless the LORD raised up judges, which delivered them out of the hand of those that spoiled them" (Jud. 2:16). There were a total of 15 judges. One of those judges was a woman and her name was Deborah.

TEXT: "For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you" (Exo. 12:23).

ATTITUDES TOWARD THE EMPLOYER
Closely associated with one's attitudes toward the job are one's attitudes toward the employer; in fact the two are inseparable. One's attitudes toward the employer will and does directly affect the attitudes toward the job. One may truly enjoy the work that they are employed for but with wrong attitudes toward the employer the job will become drudgery. How does one avoid this and what should one's attitudes be toward the employer?

ATTITUDES TOWARD THE JOB
God created man with the ability to work. In the beginning God gave man only three commands and one of those was to maintain the Garden. Upon man's explusion from the Garden his burden - the amount of work required - was increased: "...cursed is the ground for thy sake...Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee...In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread..." (Gen. 3:17-19). And so, should one's attitude toward the job be one of drudgery? What does God say about one's attitude toward the job one has?

TEXT: "But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of woman, made under the law" (Gal. 4:4).
1. The Bible is a collection of letters and individual books into one all authoritative inspired Book (2 Tim. 3:16).
2. The Bible has a purpose and each section of the Bible has a specific purpose leading to that overall purpose:
- The overall purpose of the Bible is "Redemption"-the buying back of man.
- The overall purpose of the Old Testament is to teach man "Obedience."
- The overall purpose of the New Testament is "Victory"-the victory found in Christ.
3. The theme of the Bible is Christ!
- The Old Testament: Christ will come.
- The Gospels (Matthew-John): Christ has come.
- Acts-Revelation: Christ will come again.
4. An overview of the Bible:
- THE PARTS OF THE BIBLE
- THE BRIEF SYNOPSIS OF THE BIBLE
- THE ONE WORD THEME FOR EACH BOOK
- THE PICTURE OF CHRIST IN EACH BOOK

And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it (Gen. 2:15).
From the very beginning God has intended for man to work. While some may attempt to deny that the Bible has anything to say about secular things (that is things “Pertaining to the present world, or to things not spiritual or holy” [Webster]) the position is untenable to a true student of the Bible for we find that it is a Scriptural subject. Paul sets an attitude toward work that all Christians, and in acceptance of absolute truth all men, must have, “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat” (2 The. 3:10). Much could be said to define the context of the passages, the words used (such as the difference between slave, servant, and bond[man, woman, servant]), and the like, but this manuscript will concentrate on the common thread of Scripture: The principles that should be applied to our relationships.
