James 3:13-18; What does a wise and understanding person look like?

James continues in his theme of putting practical action into a life of faith. He turns in these verses to illustrate what a wise and understanding person looks like.  This person is gentle, without bitter jealousy or selfish ambition.  This person is not arrogant.  When the opposite of these traits are manifest there is disorder and “every evil thing”.  On the contrary wisdom from above (as opposed to worldly wisdom) is pure, peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering and without hypocrisy…what a contrast to worldly pursuits that so often put us into the chaotic mode…
