Scoutmaster Minute—The X Words

There are two X words the we use frequently in Boy Scouting—eXperience and eXample.

You learn Scout skills by eXperience.  We know that the way to learn is by doing.  When we go on camping trips, you get the eXperience you need to master your skills.

When you start to teach other Scouts what you know, you set the eXample.  But much more important than teaching Scout skills is the eXample you set in your life.  Do you always wear a clean uniform at Scout meetings? Are you careful with the language you use?  Do you always finish your work before playing?

Remember to think about the two X words every day.
