Values are the Most Important thing in Life

Do you know what values are? Values are very important because it teaches you how to behave. You can be very responsible if you have values. If you have values you will have a good character. You will think about your words and actions and make choices that are right for you and others. Honesty means being truthful and not telling lies. Responsibility means looking after your belongings and looking after yourself. It is very good to have values because you will make yourself and others happy. To show respect you should always be good to other people and you need to treat them the way you would want to be treated. If you learn your values you will be caring, kind and helpful, that is called compassion. Values can help kids stop being bad. If you know some values then you should always practice them wherever you go. Self –Discipline means doing your chores before playing and thinking whether the choices you are making is right for you and others. If you have values you will be a good role model when you are a child and also when you grow up. Perseverance means not giving up and means sticking with something until it is finished. Everyone should have good citizenship and should always have fairness at school. You should learn all of the values because it will make you a better person.
If everyone had values the world would be a better place. There would be no wars, no killing, no stealing and no crime. Out of all the values there is nothing greater than love. Values are the most important thing in life.
