Is man the creature God wants for its own sake?
Bishop Williamson explains
Amongst all the material creatures on this earth, man alone is rational, i.e. endowed with faculties capable of knowing and loving God. All the rest of material creation serves only as a trampoline for man to bounce his short life on, until either he jumps to Heaven or crashes into Hell.

But God cannot want any creature, even man, for anything other than for the sake of God Himself.
