The third point of the Scout Law is:
A Scout is Helpful.
A Scout cares about other people. He willingly volunteers to help others without expecting payment or reward.
What does it mean to be helpful? Scouts know about doing a good turn daily, but it's not enough to simply check off a list, and say "I did my one good deed for the day!" Scouting isn't a once a day sort of thing, and neither should being helpful
Mark 9:35 - Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all.”
Encourage your scouts to reach out to the boys in their troop and those around them in the world to help them. Does that new scout need help figuring out how to setup a tent? Be sure to praise the scout who goes over to help them without having to be prompted. Service toward others is a crucial part of leadership.
