I Promise to Respect

Scouter Jim, Bountiful UT

I “your name”, promise to do my best, to do my duty to God and my county and to help other people, and to obey the law of the Pack.

If we apply the Value of  respect to the Cub Scout Promise what to we find?

I “your name”, promise to do my best – Cub Scouts have respect for self.  They avoid things that would harm or destroy them.  That would include illegal drugs, alcohol, tobacco, pornography, and anything else that would damage his body, mind or self respect.  Cub Scouts do things like exercise and proper eating to build strength and self esteem.

To do my duty to God – Cub Scouts promise to respect God and their personal beliefs as well as those of others.  They respect others right to worship, who, what, and where they may.  By respecting others beliefs, they are respecting their own.  They live their personal beliefs and live a virtuous and charitable life.

And my county – Cub Scouts respect their country, it beauties, it’s natural resources, and its laws.  They respect natural resources and conserve and protect those resources and “leave no trace.”  The work to improve the world and make it a better place.  They obey the laws of the land and respect those who enforce the laws and protect the citizens.  A Cub Scout is a good citizen.

And to help other people – Cubs Scouts respect responsibility and give service to others.  They give service to family members, neighbors, members of the community, and as a group often people they will never meet through the World Friendship Fund.

And to obey he law of the Pack – A Cub Scout respects his leaders and parents.  The Cub Scout respects fellow Pack members.  A Cub Scout respects his duty to serve others.
