Will fireworks be banned in the Tulip City?  That’s the issue the Pella City Council will take up this evening at their regularly scheduled meeting.  City Administrator Mike Nardini says there was a ban in place on the use and sale of fireworks prior to legislation passed in the 2017 session, and city code had to be revisited because of the change in state law. Nardini says city staff has recommended approval of the ban to the city council.  The council will consider their options to potentially restrict where fireworks can be sold in the community at a future meeting.

Mahaska County is home to more than 1,500 veterans, and now they have a new friend to help them navigate the Veterans Affairs system.  Curt Grandia was recently appointed as the Mahaska County Director of Veterans Affairs – in addition to helping vets secure their benefits, Grandia will help  coordinate transportation for healthcare when a veteran has no means of travel.  Grandia comes into his new position as a U.S. Navy veteran, having served as a journalist and photojournalist from 1984–1990. An Oskaloosa native, he graduated from Oskaloosa Senior High School in 1979 and went on to get his Bachelor’s from Arizona State University and the University of Iowa in 1983.

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.
