The Chief End of Man

“A potter forms his vessel for himself, and not for his vessels.  This determines the question with respect to God’s end in the creation
of man.  Philosophers can discern no higher end in creating man than that of making him happy.  But the chief end of the potter in molding his vessels has a reference to himself,  and God’s chief end in making man is His own glory.”

-Robert Haldane, from his Romans commentary, p.483
