As James continues to give us the marks of authentic faith, he shifts us to two pictures of wisdom. The truth of the matter is that we all live according to some code of wisdom. Whether you get wisdom from Hollywood, friends, Google or a religious system, we’re all on a quest to find wisdom that will lead us to a happier life. James says that there are two types of wisdom: worldly wisdom (3:14-16) which leads to chaos (4:1-3) and godly wisdom (3:13) that leads to a harvest of righteousness (3:17-18). James gives us a list of characteristics that mark each type of wisdom and the implicit challenge is clear: you need wisdom from Jesus, rather than wisdom from the world. Godly wisdom produces a gospel-centric life that will allow us to flourish now and in the future!
