In my opinion God wants us to follow him. We sometimes are angry at him and defy him, but he chooses to love us. He gave us freedom of choice. We can choose to follow him, we can love him, hate him, mock him and love him again. There is lots of evidence where people choose not to follow God. Adam and Eve for instance ate the apple even though God told them not to. It seems like people think they know what is best for themselves. But God's plan is whats best. I find it amazing we still get the freedom to choose, but don't deserve it. What does God want? Well he wants us to follow him by choice. As people we will never understand what God wants. Maybe its love he wants from us. That is the only conclusion I can think, for his children (or followers) are to love him, not because he forces them. No he wants love from his children because they choose to LOVE him and give him everything.
