When we concentrate our thoughts on the majesty of the Creator, May He be exalted, on His omnipotence, wisdom, and wealth, and then turn to the weakness and deficiency of man, his imperfection, dire need, and dependence on that which supplies his wants; when we reflect on the abounding favors and kindness which the Creator. May He be exalted, his showered upon him, and how He created him, as he did, with inherent limitations — man is dependent on and in need of that which secures his welfare, and he can attain it only by a great effort on his part — this (too) deriving from the Creator’s mercy on him, so that he come to know himself, reflect on all his affairs, and devote himself in every respect to the service of G-d, and so receive for it the reward of the World-to-Come, for which he was created, as we have explained in the Second Gate of this book; (when we consider all this, we realize) how much a man owes service, reverence, praise, thanks, and constant glorification to the Creator, may He be exalted, in light of what men owe one another in the way of praise and gratitude.
