Rev. Fr. Kizito Fogos, the Parish Priest of Church of Assumption, Chongo’Pyeng, Jos, has advised parents to teach their children the ways of Christ.
Fogos gave the advice in his sermon on Sunday in Jos, adding that such would ensure a better future generation.
The cleric decried that most parents have neglected their children, rendering them easy tools in the hands of the devil.
He insisted that the duty of raising a child in a disciplined and good manner rested on parents, urging them to live to their responsibility.
“I want to urge parents to teach their children the ways of Christ; teach them to love God and respect humanity.
“Teach them patience, teach them hard work and how to coexist peacefull, and love their neighbours.
“That way, we are sure of a better and beautiful generation in the future,” he said.
Fogos, who expressed optimism tgat that future generation will correct the ills of the society, also urged parents to provide quality education for their kids.
He also urged them to desist from accumulating ill gotten wealth and stockpile same for their children, noting that such will only make the children tools in the hands of the devil.
“The best gift parents can give to their children is good education; ensure they have quality education.
“Don’t invest for your children, but invest in them so that the next generation will be one full of good men and women,” Fogos said.
