There are three characters in the book of Proverbs: the wise, the fool, and the simple.
The wise seek out wisdom and fear God.
The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom,
and whatever you get, get insight.
1 My son, if you receive my words
and treasure up my commandments with you,
2 making your ear attentive to wisdom
and inclining your heart to understanding;
3 yes, if you call out for insight
and raise your voice for understanding,
4 if you seek it like silver
and search for it as for hidden treasures,
5 then you will understand the fear of the Lord
and find the knowledge of God.
The fool does not seek wisdom and does not fear God.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;
fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Fools mock at the guilt offering,
but the upright enjoy acceptance.
The simple are undisciplined in seeking wisdom and are easily misled.
6 For at the window of my house
I have looked out through my lattice,
7 and I have seen among the simple,
I have perceived among the youths,
a young man lacking sense,
8 passing along the street near her corner,
taking the road to her house
9 in the twilight, in the evening,
at the time of night and darkness.
The simple believes everything,
but the prudent gives thought to his steps.
I think it would be fair to say that the majority of us are not wise yet. Odds are that we are simple. May we seek wisdom outside of ourselves diligently that we might find we have become wise rather than fools.
