A survey of 1200+ youth taken by MTV (of all people) shows that youth are not as disconnected as we think they are.

The survey showed that of all the things that adults seem to think teens are concerned about, the number one reason they gave was relationships. Spending time with family, friends, and loved ones was most important to them. The kids, ages 13-24, were asked “What one thing makes you happy?”

It is a surprising response to what we often hear in the news, in our schools, and sadly, even in our churches. As the body of Christ, we need to be reaching out to our youth and trying to cultivate that relationship with them. We also need to help them learn how to cultivate a relationship with Jesus Christ. We need to show them by example. We need to check our relationship out first and then find a way to help them out, not as a father or mother, but as a friend and fellow Christian.

Our kids are seeking for relationships…shouldn’t we be there to help them find meaningful ones?
