the greatest and best


God had respect to himself, as his highest end [or goal], in this work [of creation]; because he is worthy in himself to be so, being infinitely the greatest and best of beings. All things else, with regard to worthiness, importance, and excellence, are perfectly as nothing in comparison [to] him.

Jonathan Edwards, The End for Which God Created the World, p. 140
quoted by John Piper, Let the Nations Be Glad, p. 204
