I don't think he was doing it out of the goodness of his heart lol. He obviously saw potential in Bruce as a possible new LOS member. He saw a kindred spirit, too, as he could relate to the anger and pain Bruce was feeling over his parents death because Ra's had lost his wife. "Your anger gives you great power, but if you let it it can destroy you, as it almost did me", "Like you I was forced to learn there are those who must be fought without hesitation, without pity" etc.

He did call Bruce his greatest student who should be standing by his side "saving the world".

"Sometimes I remember it one way. Sometimes another. If I'm going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice!"
