- Being known
But those implications all boil down to glory. Not only do we want our own way but we want the recognition of others along the way.
The author of glory hunger leaves no card unturned in facing up to this pitiful reality in life. This book is fundamental in theology and practicality. Readers will discover that the problem will be addressed and the remedy will be made clear.
What we must come to understand that living and striving for self-glory has an end that is anything but glorious. True glory (of/in Christ) starts with the end of your own craving for glorious admiration from others. When we realize we can't satisfy our appetite for our own glory, we will be able to turn from that rotten appetite to an appetite for the glory of God, which actually has a glorious ending for those who desire so.
What Vassar so humbly but clearly realizes for us all is that Psalm 115 is a cry worth declaring and a life worth living.
