I agree that there are no good or bad obligations; there are just varying degrees of obligation. Take the example of Abraham for instance; he did have an obligation to both God and to his son, it’s just that his obligation to God was a much higher obligation. I also think that in fulfilling certain obligations your indirectly taking care of the others as well; i.e. Abraham again, by fulfilling his obligation to God he secured Isaac’s future to do great things for God and that took care of Abrahams obligation to take care of his son.
