How do you interpret or apply this verse? Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice. James 3:13‭-‬16 NIV https://bible.com/bible/111/jas.3.13-16.NIV

My interpretation: How do you act out wisdom? Lead a good life. Do good things without posting about it on social media. If the reason you’re doing things is so that you can virtue signal about it, then you’re not being wise. If you lie about what you have done in attempt to look good, then you will probably develop a psychological disorder. This faked wisdom is a self deception which will leave you with envy for the real wisdom of others.
When you give to the poor, don't let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.
First, thank you for this question, good questions spark insights guided by prayer. James shares encouragement for righteous thoughts and even more so for good deeds. His letter to the early jewish Christians reminds us even today that the good works are the proof of good faith rather than self gain. It applies every day to remind us that envy leads us away from truth. Also the display of wealth serves to foster such envy. The righteous good deeds therefore are the thankless ones. When done by a child of God for the benefit of others and to the glory of god rather than glorifying ourselves. To do such a good deed without receiving personal glory becomes ever harder in an increasingly ugly transparent society. If there was to be good from anonymity, it would be to provide the means for such thankless goodness. The Lord moves in mysterious ways, but we humans are not prepared for these temptations of anonymity and do wickedness instead. Were it otherwise, there would be no need for laws, as the laws would be written in our souls. We would be like Angel's, doing only good. This is our plea in the Lords prayer, "on Earth, as it is in Heaven".
