Be Good Examples to Your Children, Cleric Advises Parents

Rev. Samuel Goro of the Lutheran Church of Christ in Nigeria (LCCN), has advised parents to live exemplary lifestyles worthy of emulation by their children.

Goro gave the advice at the foundation laying ceremony for the construction of the Sunday School Classrooms for its Emmanuel Parish, Lamingo,  Jos.

The cleric, who decried the spate of moral decadence among youths, extolled the importance of sunday school to spiritual growth and development children. 

Goro, who accused some parents of totally neglecting their roles of proper parenting, called on them to be role models to their children at all times.

“Most parents are not giving their children moral ethics of life; how to respect elders, dress decently, and imbibe good manners.

“As a parent, you should correct your kids when they say dirty things or use foul languages in your presence.

“When they disobey any rules and violate orders, learn to caution them and stop protecting them all in the name they are still kids.

“There is no kid anywhere, whatever they do now will become norms to them since nobody is yelling at them’’,Goro said.

He commended the Emmnuel parish of LCCN for the initiative, adding that it would go a long way toward giving children in the parish proper moral upbringing. 

”Today, some parents and even some churches are careless about teaching the children the right things that will build their spiritual lives and physical growth

”Lessons taught in sunday schools live with us till we die; so having a building designated to them is commendable.

”This will further unite our children and instill in them the spirit of collaboration, love and peaceful coexistence,”he added.

Laying the foundation for the block of four classrooms building, retired Archbishop Nemuel Babba, the Archbishop Emeritus of LCCN, said that the building when completed, would be open to all Christian children in the community.

He called on Church members and other spirited individuals and groups to support the project, adding that it would benefit all the children in society.

In brief remarks, Elder Isaac Ayabinde, leader of the host community, pledged its support for the church and the ongoing building project.
