That's not completely opposed to what some believers believe. In the book "Conversations with God" the author supposedly communes with God in the form of Q&A. I don't believe the author's claims are authentic, however, there is one part of the book that did make me take pause.
The author asked "God," why He created anything at all. Why create the universe, people, everything... anything?
And "God" replied (paraphrasing from memory) that in God's state of absolute perfection, He thought it rather a shame that there was nothing or no one to appreciate and witness the sweetness of His glory. He desired to create mankind and all things in order so that His perfection and holiness could be witnessed; even admired. Put simpler, so that He could be glorified. As weird as that sounds, it's a page straight out of Scripture. The God of the bible appreciates being revered, enjoys being needed, and loves being loved and glorified. As vainglorious as that may seem, if God is truly as perfect as is claimed, then He's actually doing all of creation a favor.
