Proverbs 3 liturgy

Based on Proverbs 3 (The Message Version)

Leader: Beloved ones, don’t forget all God has taught you;
    take to heart God’s commands.
People: God’s commands will help us live a long, long time,
   it will be a long life lived full and well.
Leader: Don’t lose your grip on love and loyalty.
    Tie them around your neck; carve their initials on your heart.
People: Let’s earn a reputation for living well
    in God’s eyes and the eyes of the people.
Leader: Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
    don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
People: We must listen for God’s voice in everything we do, everywhere we go;
    God’s the one who will keep us on track.
Leader: Don’t assume that you know it all.
    Run to God! Run from evil!
People: We should honor God with everything we own;
    we have the freedom to give God the first and the best.
