Man’s chief end is to glorify and enjoy God. God’s greatest and highest object is to make to Himself a glorious and an everlasting name. Since God is God it must be so; for He is full of love and kindness to His creatures, and He cannot more fully bless His creatures than by making Himself known to them. Everything that is good, true, holy, excellent, loving, is in God. He is not only the giver of ‘every good and every perfect gift’, but He is Himself the sum and substance of all blessing; and it is for the highest good of all the creatures He has made, that they should know their God.

—Charles Spurgeon
