Best Description of the Scout Law

Throughout the history of Scouting, there have been many explanations of the meaning of the points from the Scout Law. For today’s post, I have collected from various sources my favorite definitions. The points on Kindness and Thriftiness came from the ninth edition of the Boy Scout Handbook, 1986. The point on “Brave” came from the first edition of the Boy Scout Handbook, 1911. The rest came from the Boy’s Life magazine: July, 1942.

For those who regularly read this blog, I would like to apologize for not posting as regularly as I would like to. For the past two weeks, I’ve been on a writing marathon for my upcoming book that this blog is based on: “Scouting Rediscovered”! This is my first book, so I am learning a lot along the way. I am almost finished with the first draft, and I hope to be able to get it published soon.

I would like to thank everyone who reads this blog, subscribed, or ‘liked’ the blog on Facebook. I could not have gotten this far without your encouragement. I hope to soon offer this book as a resource and inspiration to all of those who are Scouts at heart!
