Scout Spirit Shows Minute
This Minute is meant for Boy Scouts.
A young Scout and his family were headed to Sunday church. On their way in, an older man who had problems walking and his wife were struggling to make it to the entrance. The young Scout kindly held open the door for them.
As the old man passed him, he questioned the boy, "Are you one of them Scouts?"
Surprised by the question, the young boy replied that he was. The old man asked, "So how’s that coming for you?"
The Scout replied, "Well, I’m First Class."
Finally, as he managed to reach the entrance of the church, the old man smiled and said, "You keep on working for that Eagle Badge."
The young Scout had never seen this man in his life, never talked to him, yet his Scout Spirit had shown by doing such a simple action as holding the door for an elderly man. Showing Scout Spirit doesn’t require a uniform, or patches of any kind. All Scout Spirit needs is an opportunity to help someone in need.
