I’ve written several posts related to this if I’m not mistaken. One of which is “Who Takes Priority?” Here. This is not so much of a new subject on the blog, but I want you to hold a little longer and read to the end.
This post is on an entirely different level because God is in the picture. From the topic, I know you can decipher what is, and I can choose to end it there but I won’t because many do not know the order, or they know but do not succumb to it.
The aim of this post is to drive home this order and ingrain it in our consciousness.
If you’ve noticed, the end of all my posts has a statement at the end. It points to the fact that God first in your life (and home) above all else or anything else. If you place anything (spouse, kids, ministry) above God, it becomes an idol. With God as the first place, the center is bound to hold.
Next to God in your heart is your spouse. They are the next in line. Anything outside that is a distortion of the order which spells havoc. Your spouse takes priority over anybody who was, who is and who will be in your life after God.Your spouse takes priority over anybody who was, who is and who will be in your life after God.

If you put your spouse next after God, and you put your children (the fruit of your union) at the back burner after everything else in this life, you have to check it. The next set of people you should be thinking of in the scheme of things should be your children. You’re accountable for them.
Every other thing can begin to fit in according to their order of importance and priority.
