The most important thing of all is to be in a right relationship with God. This is the point which is emphasized in Israel’s sacrificial system. All other relationships are secondary to our relationship with God. Jesus makes this point in Mark 10:29-30. Leave all your loved ones for Him and the Gospel and you will “receive a hundred times as much in this present age … and in the age to come eternal life.” The Psalmist affirms that his relationship with God is more important than anything else: ”Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me” (Psalm 27:10).
