I know a lot of people think this what I am actually asking is a "religious" question used when preaching. I am not preaching I really would like to hear your opinion. As agnostic, your treasures are on earth, so what do you treasure most? I am a christian and my treasures are in heaven. I have no idea what those treasures are, but I have faith they will be greater than anything you can get on this earth. So, what do you treasure most?

What an amazing question hun, brilliant. I have to say the things I treasure most would have to be my family and friends. My son (my only child) is my greatest treasure. My family and my friends are priceless to me, I cannot function without them and their support.

Thank you for the compliment. I think that is good. Family and friends are something to be thankful for, it is good to hear you love your son and appreciate him. Only way to be a good parent is to first love yor children and realize they are a blessing. That is a good thing :)

I can't get you question. If it's regarding treasuring emotions then yes I treasure feeling of love . If it's regarding tresuring materila then yes I tresure money. I'm an hindu and according to hindu mythology, our treasures are on earth only. We need to perform to get moksha or mkti which means freedom from life. I think this what you were asking .

lol. Not so much. The definition of treasure, is what you "value" the most. If you think money is everything, then that is what you treasure. If you think, God is everything, you treasure God. The word treasure comes the belief that spending your life searching for one thing, if you find it. You found a treasure. Something GRAND! For me, Jesus is the treasure. I seek him, I try to find him, and I have found him. To me, I have found my treasure. You can have more than one treasure, though.

Honestly, I'm Christian and I still believe that my treasures are here on earth. Love is the greatest treasure of all, and though I've gotten my heart broken numerous times, I've never given up on it, and just keep on giving it. Love is unending, and it is blind, not caring about color, race, religion, or origin. Love just is, and there's many levels of it. I love my children dearly, with all my heart, but it's a totally different love than I feel for the man I love, whom I also love whole heartedly. Heaven is something to look forward to, and I do, but I'm going to look for treasures here on earth while I've still got the time.

"Love is the greatest treasure of all." You stole that off a bumper sticker :P Just kidding. Do not misunderstand, to me those things you speak of are "blessings" To treasure something is to put it above all others. I try to put nothing before God. For without him, I have nothing, and I am nothing. Even family as you speak. If we truely treasure something we should have faith that God will take care of them. I believe that if we treasure something or put those things first in our lives. It will be taken away. Once again, do not misunderstand, I thank God daily for my family, friends, love, joy, LIFE. And because of this, I treasure my Lord and savior, and trust in him. This is my opinion though.

Maybe life itself is the most important . At least, you will not feel anything after you die. And we should treasure life firstly ,then we might can have other treasure . However, sometimes , we might loss our life for some more important reason ,but I still think life is the most important.

Oh, I'm also a devoted Christian. I could only say that I sincerely believe in every words written in the Bible. It promise an everlasting life for the mortal souls here and I surely would love to take it. For the believer, this can be one of the greatest treasure they can have. While I'm still here on the Earth, the Bible is my treasure for now.

Good answer. Don't misunderstand, I think life in it's own is a blessing, and all things should be appreciated. I am simply going of the fact that, treasure is something you seek, look for, and find, and when you find it, you "treasure" it. So, for me, the thing I treasure most is God. :) Good point, thank you.

Hmmm... this is a hard question. I'm not sure whether to answer it with things that are on earth or in the afterlife. On one hand, for my entire life, my relationship with the Gods has been my greatest treasure. I have felt such love, and such glorious expectation for my future because of them. I have been able to do things that I never could have imagined without them, including helping others. However, right at this moment there is a beautiful amazing little boy sitting on my lap. He is just 10 months old, and during the time I anticipated his arrival, and the time he has been with me, he has become my greatest treasure on Earth. I'm not sure I can pick. =p
