Proverbs 1:20-23 A voice is crying out to the naïve to turn, listen and become wise

Wisdom calls aloud outside;
She raises her voice in the open squares.
She cries out in the [b]chief concourses,
At the openings of the gates in the city
She speaks her words:
 “How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity?
For scorners delight in their scorning,
And fools hate knowledge.
Turn at my rebuke;
Surely I will pour out my spirit on you;
I will make my words known to you." -Proverbs 1:20-22 (MKJV)

 

There is a voice crying out to the naive in the midst of all the Corona noise.  A naive person is someone who lacks wisdom or the ability to judge prudently.  This is the meaning of "simple" in this Proverb.  What makes "simplicity" so tragic is the fact that "wisdom" continues to cry out to those that are in love with being "simple"!  These verses highlight God's love for us, even in the midst of our stubborness.  Many are so in love with "their own way", that even a life-changing pandemic is not enough to cause them to turn and listen to the voice of God.  A naieve person can only be transformed when they choose to turn and consider that voice crying in the streets!
