Glory to God Before Peace on Earth

"Isn’t it interesting how in Christmas cards and on public displays we often see the words, “Peace on earth, good will toward men”? But how seldom we see the prior words, “Glory to God in the highest”! But there is no peace, there is no good will, unless there is glory to God in the highest first. We forget to put God’s glory first. Fortunately, he does not. God will be glorified. "

Raymond C. Ortlund Jr. from Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus.
