Pella High School’s Jazz I ensemble came up just short to their rivals from Harlan in the 2018 Iowa Jazz Championships Thursday night in Ames, finishing in 2nd place.  Pella and Harlan were the two finalists after 15 ensembles from around the state performed earlier in the day in Class 3A. Annaleigh Babcock received outstanding performer recognition on the trumpet. Pella has won 17 state championships in the 41 years of the event, and have now finished in the top four of the prestigious jazz competition 36 consecutive years, with either Harlan or Pella as champions since 2015.  North Mahaska jazz also won their second consecutive state championship in Class 1A–their seventh title in the last ten events.

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig made a stop at Frisian Farms Cheese House in Leighton Thursday.  Naig says operations like the artisan cheesemakers are value-added agriculture, and his office likes to highlight those processes, both large and small.  Naig is a month into his role as the state’s Secretary of Agriculture after Bill Northey was nominated and selected to work as the Under Secretary of Agriculture for Farm and Foreign Agricultural Service in the USDA.

Keeping it Clean
in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes. Psalm 26:10
David mentioned he washed his hands of all impurities, unlike the wicked whose hands are full of wicked schemes. But he also knew that his hands could easily lay prey, and he desired to keep his hands full of the love of God instead of participating in the wickedness around him.

How quickly we can become involved in the slightest offense when we take our cues from the world. There are many practices which may seem right in the world but don’t hold up in the Word of God. There are many ways which may even bring prosperity to our families, but our hands may have to become dirty. How quickly temptation may face us to tell a white lie or cheat to gain a bit of status, but once again we soon find our hands dirty.

It is a slippery slope, and it often starts with the small things, the ones easily justified. The question becomes, are we going to take the Word of God as our authority for the decisions we make or are we going to allow the influence of the world to guide our way? Seeking God’s Word as the authority may not always make us wealthy or the easy way, but it sure will bring abundance in the heart.
