Given the confusion and frustrations women youth workers may face, it is easy to see why we might be tempted to become bitter. The Old Testament story of Deborah brings a new perspective. In Judges 5:7 she calls herself “a mother in Israel”. The picture of her as a mother, and servant-leader doesn’t bring to mind an image of bitterness and anger. The patience and tough love she showed Barak is a testimony of ‘speaking the truth in love’.
This two-part Bible study is designed to be a personal study for adult youth workers. Youth workers are busy people! We work long hours to serve others and sometimes feel like we are running on empty. If you feel like you don't have the time to do a personal Bible Study...this is for you! While this study has the adult youth worker in mind, it can also be used as a group Bible study for adults or teens. May God bless your time of meditation!
