In this world, a person’s life is valuable. The memories that we create with every person that we meet and moments that we cherish become life’s greatest treasure as the recollections that we established with one another will last a lifetime.
Be happy! I wanna share with you my greatest treasure. Hope you’ll like although it’s not tangible, but a precious G – I – F – T.
G – God
My faith thrills me that my God is my greatest treasure. He is my creator. He is my wisdom, my life, my strength, my love, and my deliverer. A precious gift of my life.
In monotheistic thought, God is usually viewed as the supreme being, creator, and principal object of faith. God is usually conceived of as being omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, and omnibenevolent as well as having an eternal and necessary existence. (Wikipedia).
I – myself
I love myself. I am valuable. I am a precious gem, a treasure in the eyes of my creator. What I become is my dearest gift to him.
Then I commit to be a candle, burning up myself, to shine upon others. I commit to be a paintbrush, painting humanity with color, bringing forth beauty. I commit to be a street lamp, breaking through the darkness, lighting the way. I commit to be a great tree, flourishing with leaves, shading passersby. I commit to be a book, manifesting the truth, giving others wisdom. I commit to be a great earth, supporting living beings, giving life to all things. I commit to live peacefully.
My commitments will serve as treasure to others.
F – Family
My family is my greatest treasure. I can bring harmony to my family by bonding to be a better spouse, developing a more loving child, and a more respectful sibling. Furthermore, I should work to educate my children, so that they may become the future leaders, the men of vision and passion (MVP). And to hone them to become better persons.
T – Time
“Time is gold.” And time is a great treasure that can never be turned back. Just like water, time continues to flow away. There is always time for everything under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:3). Using my time properly will help me measure improvements to everything that I do.
Time management is the process of planning and exercising conscious control of time spent on specific activities, especially to increase effectiveness, efficiency, and productivity. (Wikipedia)
Undoubtedly, I will cherish this GIFT of life as long as I live. 🍏🍏 🍏
“What is the greatest treasure? This question stirs my mind. I guess… You see, life is a blank page that is to be written by the choices that we make. It is the steps that we take that leads us to a path of the unknown, and its this mystery of not knowing what the future holds, that makes life so thrilling. But what makes our journey a memorable one is the people that we come across. They are the most significant of our story because it is people who make life unforgettable. I say this because a life of a person is so precious and fragile.”
“We must not let ourselves be blinded by our desires to achieve our materialistic wants, as it will not fulfill the true desires of person holistically. This is the reason why I believe that the greatest form of treasure is the people we meet because they give life full of color due to the remarkable significance of each individual that we come upon in our lives as they give more impact than any other object can. “
