I would like to know the meaning of "it puts things into perspective". Dave Talley, a homeless man who lives in Tempe, Arizona, found a backpack containing $3,300 in cash. He turned it into a local social services agency: The temptation to keep the money was almost overwhelming, he said. Then, his conscience kicked in. “The reality set in that it wasn’t my money and it needed to be turned over,” he said. Inside the backpack was a flashdrive with a resume belonging to Bryan Belanger, a student at Arizona State University and the owner of the backpack: “It’s humbling, and it puts things into perspective,” Belanger said of Talley’s decision. “From his point of view, he could’ve taken care of himself by paying for rent or something with that money.”

So would it be grammatically correct ?
