A Scout Is Kind - Scoutmaster Minute

Scouts, our Law say’s "A Scout is kind. A Scout knows there is strength in being gentle. He treats others as he wants to be treated. Without good reason, he does not harm or kill any living thing.

Hinduism declares that "One should never do that to another which one regards as injurious to one’s own self. Buddhism teaches a conceptualization of other people that reminds us we are all part of each other, while the Judeo-Christian imperative that we treat others as we would wish to be treated ourselves echoes this concept.

This thread of kindness is woven into every system of belief.

Kindness is not usually my first reaction to difficult situations. My first reaction may be disappointment, anger, frustration or some other form of dismay. But if I can maintain an even temper (something that gets easier and easier with practice) I can choose to respond with kindness.

Being Kind is not something you stop and think about. You don’t take more than you can eat. You close the gate when you go through. You put the seat down when you’re done in the latrine.

You either treat others with kindness, or you go through life oblivious to anything greater than yourself.
