A bill addressing the student lunch debt in public schools passed in the Iowa Legislature.  State Senator Ken Rozenboom sponsored the bill after it came up from the house, and says the legislation includes more ways for districts to pursue the funds without harming or shaming students. Rozenboom says schools have been put in a difficult position when it comes to parents who can’t or refuse to pay for their children’s lunch. Senators passed House File 2467 on a unanimous vote.  Many local schools have attempted to implement policies over the past few years to encourage parents to pay for student lunches.

If you saw a house coming down the road yesterday your eyes weren’t deceiving you – Habitat for Humanity of Marion County moved a house from Pella to 510 S 6th St. in Knoxville yesterday.  Goodwin House Moving, a construction company based out of Washington, Iowa, moved the house on a specialized truck over the Red Rock Dam, and through the streets of Knoxville. The house was donated to Habitat for Humanity by Bank Iowa, who will use the lot to build their new location.  Vice President of Bank Iowa Mike Maakestadt says the bank has worked with Habitat for Humanity before, and they are a fan of Habitat because they are a family owned bank that shares many of the same values with the organization.

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.
