Althought the quote is not generally used in context with the original author's intent, the phrase does hold true - people perish for lack of knowledge.
You may be asking, "How does this apply spiritually?" or "What does this have to do with today's message?" The Bible tells us in the book of Deauteronomy to teach the next generation about the goodness of God. Like a preventative medicine, teaching the next generation can be a life saver.
