Stay in a plank the whole song.
When he says “My God is able” put right arm to sky and back to plank.
When he says “My God is good” put left arm to sky and back to plank.
When he says Blessed or blessing do a merkin.
When he says The days of the week, cycle through Freddy Mercuruies ending with a High Leg lift to the Sky on “All day Sunday”.

Money can be used for good or evil. It can help us feed our family, help others or it can consume our lives. There’s nothing wrong with money as long as we aren’t consumed with it. Let’s make 2019 a year we pay off debt, grow our emergency fund, retirement funds, help others AND try to vacation and have a few nice toys!

We can enjoy our lives while using our time, talents & treasures to serve others!

Ecclesiastes 5:10 Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income. This too is meaningless.

Proverbs 13:11 Dishonest money dwindles away, but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.

Hebrews 13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.

Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

1 Timothy 6:10  For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

1 Timothy 6:17-19  17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment  18 Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. 19 In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
