James sums up in an absolute nutshell God’s heart for His community – the Church!
How often do you allow yourself to worry more about what others think of you?
Getting on with others is not a fruit of worrying what others think of you!
Likewise a ‘robust’ community is not one forever looking over peoples shoulders as to who’s toes am I treading on!
Where does it start?
Holy life in other words our behaviour characterized by first and foremost a life that desires fully to bring joy first to God’s heart and then as a consequence the community thing will fall into place!
You will overflow with mercy and blessings!
You will live right!
You will (desire) to keep short accounts
You will get along with others with dignity and honour!
