Scout Law - Trustworthy

Scout Law - Trustworthy

A Scout is Trustworthy. A Scout tells the truth. He is honest, and he keeps his promises. People can depend on him. A reputation for being trustworthy is important to you now and in years to come. Trustworthiness will help you make and maintain good friendships. But more than that, your honesty is a sign of your character - the kind of person you are inside. Your parents, teachers, and friends expect you to tell the truth and to keep your promises. They know they can rely upon you to do your best in every situation. Of course, there will be times when your judgement fails and you make mistakes. Now and then that happens to everyone. Your baseball might smash a window. You might misread your map and come home late from a hike. If you quickly admit what you have done and make good on any damage, others will soon forget the incident. By learning from your errors, you can do better in the future. You must also have trust in yourself. You know when you have done right and when you have done wrong. Live in such a way that you can respect yourself, and others will respect you, too.
