How to use 'life' and 'live' correctly

‘life’ means ‘the period between birth and death; the experience or state of being alive.’

‘live’ as a verb, has the meaning of ‘remain alive or have life.’ However, as an adjective, it means ‘broadcast, recorded or seen while it is happening’

The following sentences will make it clear for readers.

1 As life is short we should make full use of it to serve others.

2 Consuming food and drinks is part of life.

3 Women can live longer than men.

4 I hope to be able to live to see my grandson succeed in life.

5 We had a chance to watch the live telecast of the World Cup football match yesterday.
