God first. Period.
I recommend the book Putting God Second, by Rabbi Dan’el Hartman.
He recommends focusing on the poor, the homeless, the downtrodden, the widow and the orphan, the refugee first.
He fears that people focus on God and ignore the real people around them.
i would argue that putting God first and hence the commands of God we are naturally then going to love God with our whole heart soul mind and strength AND our neighbors as ourselves. which pretty much covers everyone.
however, putting people first often becomes mere idolatry and God is completely ignored
