Do you have your priorites in the right order?

Could you imagine a person who didn't believe priorities were essential to maintaining order in one's life? To most people, priorities would go something like this:
  1. God (virtues)
  2. Wife
  3. Children
  4. Other people (respect thy neighbor)
  5. Birds
  6. Dogs
  7. Other animals
  8. Plants
  9. Trees
  10. Earth
Yet for others their priorities are the opposite, as such:
  1. Earth
  2. Trees
  3. Plants
  4. Other animals
  5. Dogs
  6. Birds
  7. The State
  8. Other people
  9. Children
  10. Wife
Could you imagine the chaos that would ensue if you did not prioritize correctly? Allow me to provide an example:

Imagine, if you would, you had a 7 YO daughter and a 7 MO daughter. Your 7 YO daughter is screaming her head off and driving you nuts because she can't get her boot off. Your 7 YO is calm as ever yet she is dangling from a cliff.

The parent who has his priorities mixed up would naturally tend to the squeeky wheel, and not even take notice of the quiet wheel. Yet one can imagine the risk this poses to the unsqueeky wheel.

What do you think?
