I think everybody comes to this thought at some point in discovering their faith. Best you can do is explore your thoughts until you've figured it out. Usually takes a little longer than we live to do that.
We were created for His pleasure and to have fellowship with Him. And no it's not like a pet or anything like that at all. For He loved us so much even after we rebelled against Him that He was willing to take our place and die for us so that we can be reconciled back to Him. God is Spirit and can not die therefore He sent His Son in which was also Spirit to become flesh to die for our sins so that He could demonstrate His love for us.

I have often considered this question and the only thing I can come up with, is the earth is a playground or school room, for the evolution of the soul of mankind. I believe we are all here, learning to love god, love one another and make things better for each other.

Try not doing anything fr 1 solid hour,anything at all see how restless and bored you get, so mayb it's nt him bt us,we got tired of being this bundle of energy bt nothing to do! so he send us off on earth! Now it's up to us how we use it!
Well, here is the issue when you want to separate god from creation. If we look at god as some guy sitting up there, of course, questions like that become natural. The thing is, there's no separation between god and creation. God is not up there. It's everywhere. And therefore, creation is just a part if god being godlike. He (I hate it when I refer to god as he) is not sitting there running around doing things. There's no limit and no shape for god. It does not wake up in the morning and get ready to go to work. An it definitely doesn't get tired to rest on the 7th day.
