Let’s first of all, realise the need for values in our life. Man needs definite values by which to live and regulate his life. He needs them to keep life from being side-tracked by the many temptations and from being overrun by the constant threats to mortality. A life with no values is an open prey to destructive influences and meaningless ideas. Such a life often leads to failure and rarely to success.

Values in life help to establish priorities and make us conscious of the important and worthwhile things in life. In today’s modernization people tend to worship wealth and respect those who possess it. A well to do man commands more respect and exercises more power in the society.

Today we are afraid of the simple words like goodness, mercy, and kindness. We feel that honesty and frankness make us vulnerable. That is why the world is so sick. To heal this sick world we have to apply the balm of values. We have to inculcate the right values from a very young age.

We should realise that real dignity of a man lies not in what he has alone, but in what he is.

Our values are important because they help us to grow and develop. They help us to create the future we want to experience. They determine our priorities, and, deep down, they’re probably the measures we use to tell if our life is turning out the way you want it to.
