Wisdom cries

Pro 1:20  Wisdom cries outside; she utters her voice in the streets;
Pro 1:21  she cries in the chief place of gathering, in the openings of the gates; in the city she utters her words, saying,
Pro 1:22  How long will you love simplicity, simple ones? And will scorners delight in their scorning? And will fools hate knowledge?
Pro 1:23  Turn at my warning; behold, I will pour out my Spirit to you; I will make my words known to you.
Pro 1:24  Because I called, and you refused; I stretched out my hand, and no one paid attention;
Pro 1:25  but you have despised all my advice, and would have none of my warning.
Pro 1:26  I also will laugh at your trouble; I will mock when your fear comes;
Pro 1:27  when your fear comes as a wasting away, and your ruin comes like a tempest when trouble and pain come upon you.
Pro 1:28  Then they shall call upon me, and I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me;
Pro 1:29  instead they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of Jehovah.
Pro 1:30  They would have none of my counsel; they despised all my correction,
Pro 1:31  and they shall eat the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own desires.
Pro 1:32  For the turning away of the simple kills them, and the ease of fools destroys them.
Pro 1:33  But whoever listens to me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

  how much time does a person spend on diversions in this day and time? entertainment seems to be at the forefront of most peoples desires, be it television, video games, movies, whatever. things productive, be it work, study, relationships, even prayer take a backseat to being "entertained". Why? to what end will this take a person or civilization as a whole? when does fantasy become reality in a person's or even a whole civilizations mind? and what good is it? what will happen when the bubble people have encased themselves in pops? 
 people have distanced themselves from truth by quite a margin at this point. folly rules the day, today. how will the people respond the day truth stands up?

Sounds like you heard your Grandpa. He didn't believe in "frittering away your time" but "doing something useful" was worthy of your time. Did you notice there are 31 chapters in Proverbs. One for each day of the month.
