The book of James offers the NT Christian wisdom on many topics. In fact, it has often been compared to the book of Proverbs because of the author’s frequent jumps from one topic to another. His aim is to form fullness of maturity in the Church. He’s after depth of faith, Christians that live with a compelling testimony that Jesus truly is working in their lives. In these few short verses James lays out five simple yet profound postures that Christians must learn to align themselves with if they want to consistently grow and mature. He says:
Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
