Character Connections - Faith
- Know: Discuss things about the weather that you know to be true, but you cannot see at the moment, such as is the sun still there although you only see clouds? Is the moon there, even though it is day? Can you see wind? Do you know that the rain will eventually stop? Do you have faith in other things you can't see?
- Commit: What makes it difficult to believe in things you cannot see? What helps you to develop faith?
- Practice: Do requirement 5F. (Go outside and watch the weather)
Tiger cubs are among the youngest of scouts. an in depth conversation about faith would be a difficult one for them to handle. This requirement is an excellent one for them to work on with a parent, and it gives the parent an opportunity to discuss the family's faith with their son.
A bible verse that a parent may want to refer to in this conversation is:
"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." - Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)
