True and false wisdom (chapter 3)

James asked who was wise and understanding?  You should show by your good life that your works are done from a gentle wisdom.  Do not be boastful if you have bitter envy or selfish ambition because that is false and not true.  That kind of human wisdom is earthly, unspiritual, and devilish.  Where there is envy and selfish ambition, there will be disorder and wickedness of every kind.  The divine wisdom from above is pure, peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, and full of mercy.  This true divine wisdom produces good fruits without any hypocrisy.  A harvest of righteousness comes from sowing peace.  If you sow peace, you will make peace.  Do you have divine wisdom or human wisdom?
