This makes me think of something from The Shack in regards to how Jesus wants to be the center of our lives and not set up on some priority scale which is a set up for failure from the beginning. I love how Paul expresses this.
"Jesus now spoke up again. "Mack, I don't want to be first among a list of values; I want to be the center of everything. When I live in you, then together we can live through everything that happens to you. Rather than a pyramid, I want to be the center of a mobile, where everything in your life---your friends, family, occupation, thoughts, activities---is connected to me but moves with the wind, in and out and back and forth, in an incredible dance of being."
