glory robbers

"Sin has made uss glory robbers. We do not suffer well, because suffering interferes with our glory. We do not find relationships easy, because others compete with us for glory. We do not serve well, because in our quest for glory, we want to be served. But the story of Scripture is the story of the Lord’s glory… The Redeemer has come so that glory thieves would joyfully live for the glory of Another."

Paul Tripp, Instruments in the Redeemers hands
