Book #7: The Essence And Value Of Life

THE-ESSENCE-AND-VALUE-OF-LIFE

SYNOPSIS

CHAPTER 1: UNDERSTANDING LIFE

One of the painful realizations in life is the epiphany of realizing the treasure you have searched for, you had in you but looked for it in every other place apart from yourself. This chapter will show how this action is a consequence of not understanding life. It will also address the fact that life is just like a seed that needs nurturing to express its full potential. We will also discuss the danger of possessing a treasure without its awareness.

CHAPTER 2: THE VALUE OF LIFE

This chapter will establish that life is the most precious of all earthly possessions. This will be done by careful and well illustrated story of Louise Queen of Prussia, the daughter of Prince Charles of Mecklinburg-Strilitz, born on March 10, 1776 in Hanover Germany. She was so influential in Prussia and beyond that she successfully brought the tsar of Russia, the emperor of Australia and her husband  Fredrick king of Prussia to sign the Potsdam treaty on November 3, 1905. This allied these three kings against Napoleon. Though she successfully moved three kingdoms and a king when she was full of life and energy she helplessly said on her death bed “I AM A QUEEN BUT HAVE NOT THE POWER TO MOVE MY HAND”. The aim of the chapter is to prove that life is the most valuable of all recourse. It plays the host to any other recourse.

A case is made here that nothing in this world is as valuable and precious like life. Life is the fundamental indispensible material through which every other thing is built. A career, business, universities, nations are only possible because of life. In conclusion, this chapter will establish that when life is lost, all is lost but when all is lost but life, nothing is lost.

CHAPTER 3: FEW MEN KNOW THE VALUE OF LIFE

One of the objectives of this chapter is to show through statistics the obvious but surprising silent truth that few men know the value of life. We will compare and contrast the suicide rate between the first and third world nations. We will also look at the different economic groups in these societies. The goal of this comparing and contrasting is to show that the lack of knowledge of the value of life is an epidemic that cuts across the first world, the third world nation, the different economic and social group. With this we establish the fact that all men have life, but only few men know its value.

CONSEQUENCE OF NOT UNDERSTANDING LIFE

CHAPTER 4: YOU NEGLECT AND MISMANAGE THE TREASURE

It is a common knowledge that when purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable. We will establish in this chapter that neglect is just a natural consequence of ignorance of value. Some examples of how life is neglected will be given. We will narrate an example of a man who smokes up five packs of cigarette every day, and a driver who enjoys running at 200km/h. We will also share pastor’s own story in here as well.

A great quote by Samuel Smiles says that men who are constantly lamenting their ill luck will only reap the consequences of their own neglect, mismanagement, and improvidence, or want of application.

This chapter will end with the dominant idea pastor teaches; that because of the ignorance and negligence of life’s value, so many of us cause pain and suffering to ourselves on a daily basis, only because we do not know the value of life.

CHAPTER 5: OTHERS TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU

We will build a case here that shows that most people, who are taken advantage of are so because they lack the value of life. We will establish that they valued thing which were of less value than life itself.

CHAPTER 6: YOU SUFFER LOSS

A man named Samson who lived between (c.1002-c.1200) is an embodiment of loss as a result of poor value of his life. The essence of his life conflicted to a great degree with his personal interest. My case on this chapter will be built on this story and also the example pastor gave about the two-year old child and five thousand dollar diamond ring.

This story and other examples will be the major premise we will build on in this chapter, that one suffers consequences for not understanding the value of life.

CHAPTER 7:  THE CONSEQUENCE OF DEATH

A very strong case will be built here that death is the ultimate consequence of not knowing the essence or value of life. Stories with strong emotional sentiment will be applied here. This chapter will be the climax, showing all the consequences of ignorance of the essence of life and its value.

CHAPTER 8: THE ESSENCE OF LIFE

Great minds and philosophers from the medieval time to the present industrialized age have endlessly struggled to discover what the essence of life is. Among these great minds have come varying answers for what the essence of life is.

In this chapter, we will be defining the essence of life from pastor’s concept. We will also discuss steps that enable individuals live out the essence of their life. This is where the solution for all the chapters will be given. The essence of life will be clearly defined here and the reader will be motivated to achieve his or her own essence of life.
