It’s about being a Boy Scout

Bobby told me once that neither he nor his kids wanted to go on holiday with his wife, the mother of his kids.

“She can be a wonderful person outside the home,” Bobby said. “But at home and especially on holiday, things get really crazy. She’s just not kind. And nobody wants to spent a week in the close confines that are the norm on holiday with someone that isn’t kind.”

Sam wrote about kindness recently. It reminded me of the Boy Scout Law: A Scout is TrustworthyLoyalHelpfulFriendlyCourteousKindObedientCheerfulThriftyBraveClean, and Reverent.

Apostle Paul spoke of Love and gave a practical example of what it means to love.

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13:1-7.


Seek G-d. Find Truth. Find Love. Then have the courage to walk away from unkindness. Flee it.

Lord Bless, Keep, Shine upon y’all.
