God says to worship nothing other than Him, but I think the humans that wrote that neglecfed something...
Technically, you don't need a deity to be alive, but you need to be alive to worship one. So life must be inherently more important than God. So if you worship God, you should worship life even more and it should be valued higher than Him.
You might say "Well, people die for their god" but those people believe in life after life, they don't even believe in death, that's the whole point of religion: eternal life. So life has to be more important than your god.
You might say that without God there'd be no life, so He's more important. Suppose He decided not to make any life and it was just Him alone, then in that case he would be the most important thing. However, since there is life, the living couldn't value Him unless they are alive, it requires life before you can even value a God. So life is more important because it could continue without valuing God and it couldn't continue without valuing itself.
Even with God, the only thing you really depend on is life, without it you'd be nothing. And without God life is everything because what you do while you still exist is all that matters and is all the more precious.
So atheist or theist, life is more important than God.
