Scout Law - Trustworthy

Scout Law - Trustworthy

Challenges

Sometimes it is hard to think of examples of when you are living the Scout Law. When was the last time you had to be brave? How do you take reverent to the next level? How do you make courteous more than just opening the door and saying thank you?

These pages have examples of things you can do to work your Scout Law muscles. Look through these challenges and see if you can go out and do something you haven't done before.

Image you Scout Masters expression when he asks you, "How you have been kind since you made your last rank?" and instead of saying that you were nice to you sister you respond:

"Three weeks ago on Saturday, I went to the soup kitchen downtown to help feed the hungry. I thought that it would be a way to be kind and get a couple service hours. When I got there I was surprised by how dirty the people were. But I didn't let their looks, or smells, get in my way of being kind. I served over a hundred meals. One guys stands out from the rest that night. He was in a wheel chair and was having a hard time being in the line with all of the other people. I went up to him and asked if I could get him his food for him and he said yes and was very thankful. I was able to see first hand how my kindness could really make a difference in a persons life, both physically and emotionally."

Can you see your Scout Master's chin on the floor? Image if you had twelve stories to share like that. Instead of having your Scout Master telling you that you need to work harder on getting concrete examples and that clean is more than taking baths, you would probably see tears in his eyes, a smile on his face and the words, "I'm so proud to have you in my troop. You are an example to everyone of what it means to be a Boy Scout. Keep up the good work."
