The Second Part of the Scout Law is:
A Scout is Loyal.
A Scout is true to his family, friends, Scout leaders, school, and nation.
It is easy to be Loyal when things are going well.
Proverbs 17:17 - A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity
The word brother in this context does not mean merely a biological brother, but a person who is closer than a friend. That is, staying loyal to your friends in times of adversity will build a stronger bond than normal friendship, it will cause you to become as close as brothers.

In Matthew 26 33-35, Peter originally promises that he will be loyal to Jesus, even risking death. Later, in Matthew 26 69-75, he disowns Jesus three times. True loyalty is not measured in good times, but can be seen best when times are hard.

Ask your scouts about times when it might be difficult to be loyal to a friend. What can they do in those situations, when it would be easier to abandon their friends and give up that loyalty?
