"A Scout is reverent. A Scout is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties. He respects the beliefs of others."
This Sunday we got to serve breakfast to hundreds of members of Love of Christ. I had many members express their appreciation of the scouts, as we expressed our appreciation to them with pancakes, sausage and coffee. Service and appreciation are great ways to demonstrate our reverence to God for his blessings in our lives. Thank you each one for your service.
Another way a scout experiences the work of God is in His wonders of the outdoors, stormy weather and calm blue skies, pounding surf and trickling streams, bitter cold and stifling heat, towering trees and barren desert. Appreciating life in its multitude of forms, from the smallest insects to gigantic wildlife, a scout comes to terms with his place in the world. Though humans are the dominant beings on our planet, we need to play the role of steward rather than king - tending and caring for our world instead of taking all we can for our own comfort.
Always strive to give more than you take and you will feel blessed!
