Why do Able Magwitch keeps stressing on the detail that he has ‘made’ a gentleman out of Pip and that he is Pip’s second father? What was Abel Magwitch’s purpose behind all these?

Magwitch anonymously gave Pip the opportunity to make himself a gentleman and lead a better life than he would otherwise had had. His purpose was a genuinely, charitable act to a young man who'd helped him.
