SIMPLICITY, SIMPLE

Very similar to sincerity. A simple person is one who is open, honest, and direct, without hypocrisy. Sometimes there is the idea of uneducated, inexperienced, or unsophisticated. Simplicity is associated with ideas like integrity (2 Samuel 15:11), without evil (Romans 16:18), generosity (Romans 12:8), a life of devotion to God (2 Corinthians 1:12), and simply believing the gospel truth (2 Corinthians 11:3). God is said to “preserve” the simple (Psalms 116:6). Proverbs is filled with sayings about the simple, both good and bad (Proverbs 1:22; Proverbs 14:15,Proverbs 14:18; Proverbs 21:11). See Sincerity.
