We must love God first and foremost, but we aren’t loving Him first and foremost if we aren’t loving people.

Mark 12:28-34  –  Note that while Jesus was asked “What commandment is the foremost of all?” He gave the second foremost as well.  It’s as if 1) He knew that it would be easy for us to think that love for God had nothing to do with love for people, and 2) He wanted to be sure that we didn’t fall into that erroneous way of thinking.
