It’s very easy to forget about putting God first, and get sucked up in the materialistic and unhealthy ways of the world. It seems like everywhere you turn, there are false idols that demand attention, from singers to movie stars to models. It’s one thing to casually care about them and find them interesting, it’s a whole separate issue when one puts them first instead of God. We’ve all seen that one person that’s a slave to fashion trends, and that compromises their values in order to fit in as what’s “cool.”
I know it’s hard to stand up for God, when it seems like everyone around you doesn’t. But trust me when I say that you won’t regret it. Your peers will show their true colors when you go against the dominant thinking. You might have girlfriends that you realize are completely superficial, or a boyfriend that cares about all the wrong things. God created you for his glory, and He wants your attention. You might not visibly see Him there, but trust me when I say He is with you 100% of the time. Don’t worry about making mistakes, everyone makes them- but just try your best not to put God aside, and you will be blessed with more than you know.
1 Peter 5:7
Let Him have all your worries and cares, for He is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you.
