Misplaced Glory Redeemed

This is part 2 of the earlier Fear and Idols post

From Rescuing Ambition by Dave Harvey:
"But the good news of the gospel is that we aren't trapped by the tragedy of misplaced glory. While our ambitious impulses led us to vain pursuits, the Lord of glory has come to rescue our ambition. He has come to redeem us and recapture us for his glory. Where we haven't perceived the difference between true and false glory, he opens our eyes to behold the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. Where we haven't prized that which has real value. he recalibrates our desires to fit his direction. And where we've pursued false glory, he turns us and sets our feet on the path of righteousness for his name's sake -- for his glory."
