U.S. Congressman Dave Loebsack toured the hydroelectric dam at Lake Red Rock from its windy top to its innards on a blustery Monday.  Red Rock Hydroelectric Project supervisor Vern Cochran gave Loebsack a bird’s-eye view from the dam’s top, then led him through a series of steps and ladders down to the riverbed to show him how the plant works.  Loebsack said Iowa has wind and solar power, coal, natural gas and now more hydroelectric power.  The project began in August 2014 and is scheduled to be done in August 2019, about a year later than original projections.  Cochran said high winds have been one of several issues that have slowed progress on the new power plant.  Cranes used to place large structures and equipment in position around the worksite sit idle when winds are more than 20 mph, which has slowed work.  Issues uncovered underground have been a problem too – as workers dug they encountered gypsum, which water had washed out, leaving voids that needed to be grouted or filled before work could progress.  Cochran said all the work will be worth it in the end, as the new hydroelectric plant will provide decades of renewable energy for local communities in South Central Iowa.

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.
