Join Us for the Twelve Days of a Scout Christmas

Join us on The Boy Scout as we count down to the holiday with the twelve days of a Scout Christmas with a message each day focused on the Scout Law. Sure, it is convenient that the Scout Law has twelve attributes, but that’s not the only reason we’ve decided to continue this Christmas tradition on the The Boy Scout.

The spirit of giving at Christmas time is unlike any other. There is something about the season that makes us turn outward and give of ourselves — usually in the form of gifts for our friends and family — but, we also look inward at the sort of people we are and how we could be better. When we do this, we realize we are giving another gift. We are giving the gift of ourselves to our Savior. When we turn our hearts to Him, we are giving a much better gift than anything wrapped in a bow.

Scout LawAs Scouts (and all of us), we can give the gift of being physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight. By living the Scout Oath and Law, young men learn who they are as sons of God and strive to be what a Scout says he is.

Visit The Boy Scout everyday for the Twelve days of Christmas beginning tomorrow, Dec 13, with special Christmas stories focused on the twelve attributes of the Scout Law.

Feel free to share these daily messages as special Christmas Scoutmaster minutes, campfire devotionals, or in weekly meetings. Or maybe a special Scouter in your life would appreciate a nice Christmas message from a friend.
