Students in their early years of life are taught moral science. They are taught what they should do and what they should not do. An attempt is made to build in morals in the children. And this is done by telling them about the right living. Moral science can be best taught by including spirituality in its approach. In fact without the inclusion of spirituality, moral science holds no base of existence. By no way moral science can act as a character-building tool in those who know little or nothing about God. God is not an option that may or may not be included in the education curriculum. God is of paramount importance in building future adults as responsible and ethical citizens.
In olden days the character and morals of the people was much more pleasant for the society. It should be noted that the focus of education in those times was on “God”. After years and years of meditation on the curriculum requirements the people of the olden years arrived to a conclusion that the study that targets on the understanding of the existence of God is the best of all the approaches for educating children. For he who knows God and believes in him leads far more agreeable life in both his family and society.
Spirituality provides a reason why we should be righteous and full with morals. Moral science just says what is good and what is bad. Spirituality adds to our knowledge the consequences that we might face if we do wrong. Moral science provides us a platform where we are to choose between right and wrong and it asks us to choose the right. Spirituality tells us that as a rule we have to choose right ways otherwise the consequences will include sorrows and hell. The fear that should arise from doing wrong is cultivated only by spirituality.
The school curriculum for children should be designed and created with the help of psychologists. The best way to strengthen morals in an individual should be studied and their practical application should be researched. The other subjects of knowledge and science can certainly be learnt and known by the individual who holds strong moral character and realizes the need of attainting knowledge that is crucial. Thus, children should be taught spirituality and the focus should also be held on cultivating in them a desire to learn and progress. This will not only assure better citizens on earth but will also assure more intelligent brains in the scientific world. This is because the person with strong moral character will certainly be more sincere and hard working.
