How did Avraham recognize that his service of God was to provide food and shelter with the view that the recipients would thank God?
By his mind, by his submission - he knew intrinsically. He knew that God wants to bring His blessing to the entire creation.
It was not based on the level of emotions/midot. It was based on mind/mochin.
Emotions are interested in their own experiences. Mind/mochin, by contrast, focuses on what there is and finds that it is in His presence - earth and heaven have a Godly quality.
Mind works not by calculation - it works by connecting to the subject itself - it becomes bound up and functions according to this connection to reality.
