Do you know what relationship really is? and do you have any? Unfortunately, not too many really do, and the next generation even less, and the teens today are lacking it, and their behavior is showing it.
GOD wired us for relationship….
HE wired us to feel physical touch,
HE wired us to feel loved,
HE wired us to hear kind words, soft voices, friendly eyes looking back at us.
I love modern technology! Can’t wait to see what comes out next! But our culture today is very deceptive in the way it tears the relationship away. NOT saying that good things are not happening as well. But how about the people physically close to us?
Teen on my bus…”my mom texts me too much, and i follow her on twitter, i run out of things to talk to her about”. Me: ” so what do you do when you get home?” teen: stay mostly in my room, homework, facebook, twitter…mostly bored”. we have become a culture more and more of short messages, we don’t even spell correctly anymore, and we forget to touch, to laugh, to slow down, have conversation that does not include technology. Scary…the enemy will take something that is good and use it against us if we are not careful.
Relationships take time, the need to experience each other is necessary. Time spent together is necessary. I know..We have it undercontrol. or do we? What are a children learning from us as we move through this technology era..how are they applying what they see?
I am no longer surprised that believers in Jesus Christ, do not believe in a personal relationship with HIM, we live in an age where relationship is disposable, and as easy as click to rid a person from your following. I guess the enemy has done his homework, and praying that the body of Christ will do theirs..literally.
AGAIN..i am not knocking twitter, facebook, or any other technology…please don’t allow those things to be your only relationships, and God the Father, Son, Holy Spirit are not on these things..they are sitting beside you..waiting for relationship.
What in your own definition is relationship? How does one come into a deeper relationship with anyone?

Its not enough to just walk through the day and to just think at its end, “that’s it! nothing more!” We tend to forget to seize the day! Be intentional..Looking for what God is doing around us, and anticipating that one person HE may put in your path who is ready to know HIM. When we do this, we are never disappointed, and not at all weary at the end of the day. Kingdom living, be intentional, spend time with HIM, and keep the conversation open all day long. Seizing that moment when someone just looks at you and needs a smile, or “hey how you doing?” then wait for them to respond, not walk on by.
I know our schedules are crazy at times, but we serve a GOD who doesn’t run out of time, and when I actually do these things, my day comes together in a supernatural way. One more thing for me to stand of awe about at the end of the day.
Go on now! get out there and just ask someone “Do you know my Jesus?”
