A number of people gathered on Saturday to celebrate 25 years summer fun at the The Beach waterpark in Ottumwa.  Gene Rathje, Ottumwa parks director and The Beach manager, said the facility has improved the quality of life in Ottumwa.  Rathje said the park not only is a fun place for kids, it also helps keep them out of trouble; he also noted that people come to enjoy the water park from all the country, which provides Ottumwa’s economy with a much-needed shot in the arm.  The $4 million park opened in 1992; it recently completed Phase I of a big renovation project; work on Phase II is set to begin in September.

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.
