In 2015, Guinness World Records – the ultimate authority in record breaking achievements – celebrates the 60th anniversary of its first published edition and the creation of one of the world’s most successful and recognized brands. The idea for a book of records begins in the early 1950s when Sir Hugh Beaver (1890—1967), Managing Director of the Guinness Brewery, has the idea for a Guinness promotion based on the idea of settling pub arguments and invites the twins Norris and Ross McWhirter to compile a book of facts and figures. What takes shape is a book that will go on to become an all-time best seller and the rest is history. We have a far better best seller to help us to live harmoniously: the wisdom of God’s Word. James wants us to apply this godly wisdom to our personal lives and relationships. The conclusion that James comes up with is that ‘we are what we do’. Not ‘we are what our job title states about us’, or ‘we are what we own’, nor even ‘we are what we say we believe’. It is what we do that shows who we really are, and it is what we do that reveals the kind of wisdom that we operate with, the kind of understanding that we have. So let’s not be impressed with how well another person can speak. God is impressed only with how well we live what we believe and teach. James wants to help us understand this truth.
