Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre says parents must remember to provide spiritual guidance to their children, in addition to the goal of ensuring the youngsters have a secure future.
“As parents, one of our goals is to ensure that our children have a secure and promising future ahead of them. We must also remember the importance of guiding them spiritually, as well as in all other aspects of life,” Pierre wrote Sunday on Facebook.
In this regard, the Castries East MP quoted Deuteronomy 6:6-7 from the Bible.
“Deuteronomy 6:6-7 says “These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” This verse reminds us that we should be teaching our children about the Lord’s commandments daily and leading them in the right direction,” Pierre stated.
“Let’s work together to ensure that every child in this country, no matter where they live or what their background is, they can achieve success,” the Saint Lucia Prime Minister urged.
