Grounding 2000w inverter generator

Hi, newbie here. During the power outage from hurricane Michael I purchased and ran my first generator. The manual says it must be connected to a ground. I connected to the ground of my homes electrical system with all my breakers off. I don't intend to backfeed into my homes circuit because I only want to run a couple low watt appliances and charge phones. Is it safe and necessary for me to ground this way? Is there any danger if the power is restored and the generator is connected to the ground? Thanks in advance guys!
