There are obvious wrong doings and then there those things people do not even realize. Either way, sin is sin and no one is perfect. The times teens are so drawn to a relationship that their whole life is that other person, God is put on hold. All prayers are about making things work with that person which is not putting God first. Teen idols are fun but they certainly jeopardize God’s perfect order.
There are numerous examples that fit idols in life and being stubborn about giving them up. Musicians who are gifted many times will leave no room for another musician to participate. Job promotions sometimes are given to a few people based on personality and looks and deserving workers are left out. The list goes on and on. God loves all people and is willing to make things right with Him.
When we bring our shortcomings to His alter He will take what is wrong and substitute what is pleasing to Him. All people sin but all people can call on God to make things spotless.
Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. Your filth will be washed away, and you will no longer worship idols. And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.
