Why did God even make mankind?

In the beginning God had everything that He wanted. All of His needs were satisfied. He had no need of anyone else. But the problem was that He was alone. He had no one to share all of His blessings. It is funny to think that God was lonely. But it is exactly what was wrong. We, being the image and likeness of God, get lonely. So, God made a plan to create man and a world to live in. His plan was perfect. The only problem was that man wasn’t. God didn’t want a robot. What He wanted was someone like Him, a child, to share in the blessing. What is hard to grasp is that God knew before He even made man, that man would sin and walk away from Him. Yet He made man anyway. God didn’t need the aggravation man was going to cause. So, why did God even bother to make mankind? Loneliness is the opposite of sharing your love with someone. God had all this love in His heart, that He wanted to share with someone. He began with Adam and Eve. It was good for a while. Until, Adam sinned against God and was cast out of the garden. But God didn’t abandon him. His love knows no bounds. God doesn’t need us. He wants us.
