By this point in the novel, the man has noticed his son has emotionally and spiritually matured even beyond the man's own point. The man also knows that he is going to die soon and the boy must decide his own future. 

The man knows that he will not be around for much longer and realizes that the boy must start to form his own opinions and make decisions for himself.
