we chose to live our lives. We are driven in many different ways, whether it from a religious faith or forever seeking the purpose and meaning of life, humans will always face the fight between what is right and wrong? It is the idea within ethics that is the argument of what is morally right and wrong. It is where the concept of value lies. For humans, value can be individual importance or worth in things or self worth within themselves. Value can also be a societal or universal importance. It can also be subjective because everyone has his or her own personal views on how to live. We may find value in things themselves, objects, jobs, people, or animals, all of which are intrinsic values because they poses something other than the idea themselves. To that individual, they have a sense of worth. Things like living a good life or giving back to the community are ways that hold extrinsic value. Things that are simply not intrinsic. Why do we as human beings “Value” things? We as humans value things because it is the way we live our lives. We may not realize it, but the things that we spend the most amount of time on,
are the things we value the most. They are the things in life we feel that deserve the most attention and importance. If we did not value things, nothing would ever be special or significant. It is our way of separating the things that we find less appealing or less relevant to our lives. Values to humans are important because for some it allows them a sense of harmony and peace within heart and spirit. Valuing something means that without it, life may be in disarray, such as the importance of valuing a relationship with a significant other. Which would entail staying faithful, not committing adultery, and forever loving them. Unfortunately, evil does exist, therefore not all values may be good. For what good is for one man may not be for the other. The nature of our values may never be meant for the good, but for evil doing. Since everyone’s values are all different and subjective, some people value something’s more than others, such as life itself. Life can be viewed in different ways. Those who value life, live it and hopefully try to seek the purpose and meaning of life, but for others, the purpose and meaning of life may be that of evil doing, in which that is what they value. Values are moral maps, or boundaries set up by society to keep things organized. They are common ways of living, or conduct codes, in which everyone follows. They are moral laws that allow people to live harmonious together. Values can also be cultural values based on their beliefs and customs. We find our values from how we are raised, the education we are given and our personal beliefs whether there is in a higher power or not. For
Christians, following the Ten Commandments are set ways of living in which they value. Futhermore, values are they things we personally find most important within heart and soul. They are our moral maps that guide us in order to be “good”. Values bring our lives balance for without them, we would live inharmoniously. We have values because it allows us to arrange our lives based on what we feel is important. What we value and spend the most time on defines how we are. It creates our personal character. We must be careful what we value because it is not always good, value can be evil. Our society has a large impact on what we find important but we must remain from outside corruption disrupting the hearts goodness.
