If your life is precious why it is precious? Human birth is superior? You have sound health and enjoy life fully? You have a lot of money and wanna enjoy life? You have a great family, spouse and children you wanna enjoy life with them? You have special talents and think your life is precious? You want to enjoy dance, music etc? You are useful to many persons, so it's precious?

Not really! We are great at bluffing ourselves. When we were young we played with dolls and behaved like adults. We knew it is a make believe. Nothing has changed!

Yes, my life is precious and I believe every individual's life is precious. God gives life. And life begins at conception long before a baby takes its first breath. Abortion is wrong because it snuffs out a life. Abortion stops a beating heart. Our society today places particular value on people who can contribute. People are valued if they make money and spend it. People are valued if they have no special limitations to slow them or others down. Just wanna say Life is precious. Enjoy each and every day of your life.

All life is precious. We take so much for granted. We don't realize how precious life really is until something or someone is taken from us. We need to live each day to the fullest because life is that precious.

Every life is precious. As long as we are here to do good and the best we can then we have accomplished something. Practising abundance without stealing or killing.

hi vijayanths, and here you go again with your nice thoughts. for me, my life is precious, yes. not because of the things that i have done or achieve, its because my life was from a precious source...our God. and to have this life He uses my parents to give it to me and that fact makes my life so precious and makes me value it. if i value my life its like giving value to those who gave it to me. life itself is already precious its like time that once gone can never be back. how we live & use this precious life will be the one to determine how precious we are as a person.

Hiya vijay, In spite of everything that happens in ones life yes our Life is precious. We may not want to say it is but I think we feel that it is. How can you fail to be moved by the beauty of surroundings for example. We are surrounded by Mountains not too high but enough. Lot´s of green grass, lots of wild Flowers, Birds quite a lot here. The Sun sets over the Mountains and makes it spectacular to watch if you can. If there is a half Moon or quarter Moon it´s still lovely to watch. Watching your Children being born also that is precious there are so many things that we could list but we forget to that´s all.

Yes I agree that there is nothing more precious than life! Human birth is proof that indeed there is such a thing as a miracle. Health is the most important thing any of us can have because no amount of money or ‘stuff’ will count for much if one does not have good health. Having a lot of money is a bonus in life but it is meaningless without someone to love. My family means everything to me. I love my writing and my books, they bring a lot of joy in my life and as far as music goes, I love it and I so wish I could sing but alas, I can only do it when no one is listening!

I know that my life is precious for first of all myself and then for the people who loves me too like my family, my friends and finally my boyfriend, I always help when I can to and I think my life is helpful to them too.

Very much. It's because I have children to guide till they will earn their diplomas and perhaps help them care for their children. Yes we don't own our life as it was lent by God, and His will must be done, but, we are given the chance to pray for His guidance for us to safe in all our ways and this is also a way wherein we could show how faithful we are. By constantly praying to Him fervently to protect our precious lives.

I donot judge the value of anything that way.If people think something is good,at the same time he must have a negative judgement.But essentially the nature is neither good nor bad,it is mere a natural course. When people have a concept of "good",the "bad" feeling will exsit meantime.Why should we have so many bad feelings kept in mind? Natural heart should be peaceful,excluding bad feelings,therefore,judgement of what is good or precious should be also kept away.Life is just natural.Good or bad is not an essential matter.

of course it is... i am created by God according to His image... and He puts me into this world for a purpose which is to glorify and enjoy Him forever... so of course my life is very precious... i won't trade it for anything else... as the Bible says, what is the use of having the whole world if we lose our lives??? take care and have a nice day...

For me life is precious because it is a gift from God. Human birth is superior than all the other creations on earth. If I have a sound health, I will enjoy life fully and maintain my good health. If I'm not lucky enough, that shouldn't refrain me from exerting efforts towards achieving good health. One doesn't need to have lots of money to enjoy life,and money is not what makes a life precious. To value this precious life, one must strive to have a great family, or live a blessed life as single, harness the talents given and use those talents in serving mankind and glorifying God.

hi vijayanths You are always making me think he he. shame on you. good discussion. Yes all life is precious as it comes from God, each day welive is a present a gift from God waiting for us to unwrap it and enjoy. Look some of that stuff is hooey we do not need a ton of moneyto be happy. happiness comes within ourselves. No I do not have a lot of money but I am happy at being alive and having a wonderful son and a great best friend. I love my computer and monitor as I can visit all my lot friends and share and care and even earn here. Yes I am precious as I know how to care for sick people and I feel for others, so I am precious just like everyone else is precious. God made us so we all are precious.
