Why did the Devil present to Jesus not only all the kingdoms of the world but also "their glory"?
What lies beneath the kingdoms of the world is glory. Glory is the innocent nature, which is the foundation of the world. Innocence is also the nature of God, or Love.
Consciousness is both physical and spiritual. The physical nature, or animalistic nature of man protects greed, war, hate, and etc, while the spiritual side of consciousness protects innocence, or the glory of God. Jesus referred to this dual nature as the son of man, while Jesus Himself was referred to as the Son of God. Being a son of man holds a dual nature of both physical and spiritual. Being the Son of God, Jesus only related to His Righteousness, or Glory.
It is obvious, evil cannot represent Righteousness, which is glory. Perhaps this conflict was one that Jesus perceived in His Own Mind while He was making this decision.

The glory of god is everywhere. Are we just casual about the god's gifts to us?
