I'm not religious so I put my parents first. Sometimes it's out of obligation but most times it's because they've done so much for me so it's the least I can do.

My parents are both dead.  I believe in God .. But don't consciously put him or her first.  I put trying to be the best person I can be and living a decent life first.  I'm sure that's what God is telling all of us to do.

Well since the choice to me is my Parents or "Nothing", I would have to default to my parents.

My father passed away over a year ago, so that consists of my mother.

Well, I do believe in a specific God.

Over the years, I started putting him first, then shifted my focus (hopefully appropriately) to the other tasks for which He seemed to have put me in charge. 

When more than one of those tasks seemed to be priorities, He told me which ones He wanted me to deal with directly and which to leave with Him.

And of course, when I felt overwhelmed, I occasionally asked Him him to handle some of them, because He of course loved all of them even more than I do.

It turns out He really really likes to be asked, and I am amazed at the help He provides.

If tapping into that reality (which not everyone thinks actually exists) makes me thought to be nuts, expect a patronizing laugh from me at first before I seriously try to explain why it's actually true.

And of course you may not think that my explanations are adequate....but that's OK, cuz I'm into sharing, not preaching.

Jesus stated, "You must love Jehovah  your God with your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole mind."  "This is the first and greatest command" Matthew 22:37,38  My parents are both dead and when they were alive I put God first and that made me a better daughter to them.
