Moral values, as the name says, implies the significance of the moral qualities in the conduct of the kids, the youth and everyone one in life.
Primarily the moral values are the qualities which one gains from life through the journey of life. They also depict the standards of what is right and what is wrong for us which we learn in the schools and in the workplace and from our surroundings as well. The beliefs which we gain from the family and the society that directs us how we lead our lives is what moral values are all about. Moral values develop character of a person.
It is very truly said that –
“If Wealth is gone, nothing is gone.
If health is gone, something is gone.
But if character is gone, everything is gone”.
Moral values depict our character to the outer world. They are of extreme importance in our lives. In earlier times, people were so determined to follow these values inherited from our ancestors. Such was their determination that once committed they never went backed off from their words. But with modernization and urbanization, we have lost our moral values somewhere.
Children disrespecting their parents are a common sight nowadays. But, we should not blame the children for this. Teachers and Parents should endeavor to put in their best efforts into helping students and their children imbibe very solid moral values. Most children are very observant and they copy and learn habits and behaviors of their elder siblings, parents and teachers. They pay a solid attention to the manner of action and behavior of people around them and are tend to behave and act similarly to what they notice. They would be tending to speak only the truth if they notice that the elders around them are always truthful no matter what the situation may be.
Likewise, it is important as elders not to be engaged in any form of bad behavior as the children assume that they can also do these things as they are not wrong because the elders around them are doing it. We should try to always demonstrate good and solid moral values most especially because of children. The best way to teach children good and solid moral values is through our own actions and habits.
Establishment of good relationships depends upon good moral values. Values like honesty, trust, faithfulness and loyalty are essential in establishment and sustainability of good relationships. It is also important in building the economy. Through determination and hard work, people are able to conduct activities that contribute largely to the economic growth of a society. Also through establishment of good relationships, trade is conducted smoothly and there is teamwork in trade and performance of business transactions.
A person without moral values is considered to possess a bad character and the society will start to judge the person due to this behavior. Inhumane and Unethical Activities like dishonesty, telling lies for your own benefit, hurting others and even worst things, should be avoided. Lack of those values even leads to strained relationships and misunderstanding among members of the society.

People that have great moral values are very indispensable asset to others and even the society at large.
