SM Minute—A Scout is Reverent

Scoutmaster Minute—A Scout is Reverent

A Scout is reverent.  A Scout is reverent toward God.  He is faithful in his religious duties.  He respects the beliefs of others.

Sometimes we overlook the 12th and final point of the Scout Law.  How a Scout is reverent is between him, his family and his relationship with God.  My relationship with God is different than yours.  Some of us attend church every week.  Some of us celebrate God’s grace in the great outdoors.  What is important is that every Scout is reverent towards God, in his own way.

When we go camping, we have a Scout’s Own service like we did at last weekend’s Camporee.  This is not meant to replace your church duties.  It simply recognizes that a Scout is reverent and shares our different religious traditions.

A Scout is reverent, yet we also respect the many different ways each of us is reverent all around the world.
