First graders at Lincoln Elementary in Pella learned all about money and community banking this past Wednesday thanks to the employees at Leighton State Bank.  Employees from Leighton State Bank met with 70 students in Carleen Coppock, Dana Gleason and Allison Terlouw’s classrooms.  COO Joel Cornilsen read The Berenstain Bears book “Trouble with Money,” while customer service representative Rosie De Bruin talked to students about checking and savings accounts and how banks invest their profit into the community.  To end the afternoon, students played, “Are you smarter than a banker?” where the class answered trivia questions against De Bruin. The students raised $100 for the school’s library by answering the trivia questions correctly.

Poor weather didn’t scare away dedicated half marathon runners last weekend, who completed the 2nd Annual Pot of Gold Half Marathon & 5K Fun Run on Saturday, March 24th despite the damp rain and snowy conditions.  Held by the Oskaloosa Education Foundation, the event honors the memory  of Isaac Hoven, an Oskaloosa Middle School Cross Country runner who passed away in March 2016. A total of 122 ambitious runners signed up, an increase of 30 from the inaugural run last year.  Proceeds from the event will help fund a scholarship for graduating male and female senior  runner at Oskaloosa High School, as well as foundation projects for teachers and students at the school.

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.
