Firefighters fought 14 degree temperatures and a zero degree windchill as they worked to extinguish a house fire in Pershing this morning.  The Indiana Township Fire Department, Knoxville Township Rural Fire Department, Knoxville Rescue, and the Marion County Sheriff’s were paged to 1751 179th Place with the report of a house fire.  The home, which records show belongs to Stephanie Clark, is a total loss, but thankfully authorities on the scene reported that the people in the home were able to evacuate safely.

The Iowa Supreme Court paid a very special visit to Marion County yesterday, visiting schools in the area and hearing oral arguments at the Knoxville Performing Arts Center.  Chief Justice Cady visited Knoxville High School, Justice Appel was at Pleasantville, Justice Wiggins visited PCM High School, and Justice Zager visited Pella High School.  Chief Justice Cady said being in the judiciary is a fulfilling profession that makes a difference in people’s lives, and he hopes to inspire students who witness the court in action.  The court held a special session in the Knoxville Performing Arts Center with a crowd over 100 strong, hearing the oral arguments of a medical malpractice lawsuit on appeal.

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.
