    I found this and thought it was something that could give comfort to those feeling 'punished' or sad about sheltering in place.

    Proverbs 22 (NKJ)

    1 A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches,
    Loving favor rather than silver and gold.

    2 The rich and the poor have this in common,
    The Lord is the maker of them all.

    3 A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself,
    But the simple pass on and are punished.



    NIV

    The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty.

    And to go deeper, not just taking refuge inside your home, but

    Ps 18:2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

    I love Proverbs. Same with Psalms. Seems to be something for everyone. :)

    Proverb collections are common in many cultures. One of my favourites is a fisherman's proverb from India --- "Pray to God but row away from the rocks."

    Proverbs 3: 1. My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart,
    1. My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart,
    2. for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity.
    3. Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.
    4. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.
    5. Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
    6. in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
