Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom (James 3:13)
Who doesn't want to be considered wise? No one sets out to be a fool. The evidence of wisdom is outlined in James 3:13 as "deeds done in humility". This means doing good deeds without a "hooray for me" attitude. Humble people do not need to call attention to themselves, do not always need to be number one. They enjoy helping others succeed and grow.
A person can brag about their wisdom and understanding, but if it isn't shown by the way they live, then it probably isn't wisdom and understanding. These qualities cannot be faked for the long-term. Make it a priority to ask God to develop wisdom and understanding in your life.
