After the sinners have tried to deceive and corrupt the young person to whom these words are addressed by a loving father, another individual seeks to get the attention of the young person. This individual is called wisdom and the message she brings will provide happiness and contentment to any who listen to her.
Wisdom’s message goes to different classes of individuals, including the “simple,” the “scorner” and the “fool.” These descriptions fit those who have not accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord or as their Saviour.
The sad results of not accepting the message which wisdom gives results in fear, desolation and destruction. Those who have rejected wisdom will try to call to her for help, but she will not answer them. How important to accept God’s message of love and wisdom immediately!
