In Islam, should you also love God more than anyone or anything?

Are ther any scriptures that say so?

Update:

But why? Why must you love him more?

    Yes,

    "In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

    Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, The Beneficent, the Merciful. Owner of the Day of Judgment, Thee (alone) we worship; Thee (alone) we ask for help. Show us the straight path, The path of those whom Thou hast favored. Not (the path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray."

    بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ (١)

    ٱلۡحَمۡدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلۡعَـٰلَمِينَ (٢) ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ (٣) مَـٰلِكِ يَوۡمِ ٱلدِّينِ (٤) إِيَّاكَ نَعۡبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسۡتَعِينُ (٥) ٱهۡدِنَا ٱلصِّرَٲطَ ٱلۡمُسۡتَقِيمَ (٦) صِرَٲطَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَنۡعَمۡتَ عَلَيۡهِمۡ غَيۡرِ ٱلۡمَغۡضُوبِ عَلَيۡهِمۡ وَلَا ٱلضَّآلِّينَ (٧)

    We as Muslim recite this daily to God.

    Edit: We must love him more because he is the "Beneficent, the Merciful" God is almighty. Nothing else in life deserves worship He should come #1 because he is our guidance. He created up. Just as you are obedient to your parents for being your guardian and authority for creating you; we should do for God the one who created ALL.

    Our love for Allah is shown not only in belief but is confirmed by our actions, by following His commandments, and it is for our own benefit.

    Yes, because Allah (God) created us and we are Allah's slave....A slave obeys his Master.
