SEVEN GREAT VIRTUES OF LIFE
EQUIPMENT: Some kind of "Arrow
of Light" model or symbol. Eight candle holders (7 of them could be
incorporated with the "Arrow of Light" symbol.) Bow, Arrow,
target. Advancement ladder or board, crossover bridge.
WEBELOS LEADER: Den Chief will you
light the candle representing the rank of Webelos.
Here we should stop and think of the
inner meaning of the word Webelos. It means "We'll be loyal
Scouts" -- to our country, our home, and to God. Now, as we look
back down our Cub Scout trail, we see how bright the pathway is. Bright
because you Webelos have helped make it so. You light the pathway
through Cub Scouting by doing your best and giving goodwill.
Den Chief will you please bring
forward the following boys and their parents. (Name boys and parents)
WEBELOS LEADER: Webelos Scouts, the
emblem you see before you represents the Arrow of Light Award. There are
seven rays in the Arrow of Light. As we light the candles representing
the rays, you will hear how they stand for the seven great virtues of
1. WISDOM - Wisdom does not
necessarily mean superior knowledge. It means putting to the right use,
the knowledge that one possesses.
2. COURAGE - Courage is not the
quality that enables men to meet danger without fear. It is being able
to meet danger in spite of one's fear.
3. SELF-CONTROL - Self-control isn't
limited to the control of one's temper but control of one's self in all
4. JUSTICE - Justice is the practice
of dealing fairly with others without prejudice or regard to race, color
5. FAITH - Faith is the conviction
that something unproven by physical evidence is true.
6. HOPE - Hope means to expect with
confidence. Always hope for better things to come.
7. LOVE - There are many kinds of
love; Love of family, Love of home, Love of
fellowman, Love of god, and Love of
country. All these Loves are necessary for a full life.
