When His goodness moved Him to make a creature, His goodness necessarily moved Him to be beneficial to the creature.  This necessity does not result from any merit in the creature which God had framed, but instead stems from the excellency and generosity of His own nature and His own glory…….  What reason for praise and thankfulness could an innocent creature have if God had given him a miserable frame?  The goodness of God would not permit Him to make a creature without providing a means of its living, as long as He thought it good to maintain the creature and furnish it with all that was necessary to achieve the end for which He created it:  His own glory.
