A Scout Chapel Service

My son is a Troop Guide this spring and was Chaplin last year. The current Chaplin was unable to attend this weekend and as a result Conner was asked to fill in. I am pretty proud of my son as all dads I hope are too. So proud am I of the message God gave him for the service this week that I thought I would share his notes with you. I think it is a pretty good message to hear.

Good morning welcome to chapel

Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all sins. (Proverbs 10:12)

Did you have a good Valentine’s day? Did you maybe have that special someone well even if you did or didn’t GOD loves you. He’s loved you since before you were born, now and to come. See in the bible god talks about love; how we should love our families, our friends, and our siblings. Because you’ve all heard your parents to tell you to say I love you to them. 

Well do you ever heard someone tell you to love that quiet kid in the corner all by himself. Now I’m not talking about love as in marriage I mean like more than a family member love. Because with a family member you’re stuck with them am I right?  But you still love them even when they make mistakes. 

Now let’s say there’s that one kid you know that no one likes maybe because he’s annoying or weird but how many of you would say that your family is weird? You still have to remember that we are all god’s children. Now this week if someone is bothering you just stop and think we are all god’s children. This is my brother or sister I love them. 

Just try being nice to everyone this week. Now I’m not going to say that I get along with everyone. No, I don’t there’s some people I just can’t stand but, I’ve learn to love them and they end up being pretty cool. This week remember that god created all of us and loves every one of us.  So by loving those people we also are loving God.
