Tapestry for the Soul
The Purpose of the Creation
Our Sages have taught us that God’s only purpose in creating the world was in order to give pleasure to His created beings. It is here that we need to put our eyes and focus our thoughts because it is the ultimate aim and purpose of the creation of the world.
The very purpose of creation itself necessitates the creation within the souls of a will to receive that is of the most prodigious measure, compatible with the great amount of joy with which God intends to give delight; for great pleasure and a great will to receive it go together.
