Core Value: Honesty - Ideas for Wolf, Bear, Webelos Den - including jokes, game, song, Gospel Principle and Scripture

Core Value: Honesty

Skit, Joke, Run-on:
Q:What is it that can’t talk but always tells you the truth
A: A Mirror

Q: What animal is always dishonest?
A: A Cheetah

Equipment: Bucket of water, spoon, and a red cup (one for each team)
Starting at the bucket, get a spoon of water and run to the red cup. Fill it one spoon at a time by one person at a time. First team to fill their cup wins.

Honest & True
Alice, Golden Empire Council
 (Tune:  Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious)
This has actually turned into a personal challenge –
to come up with a song each month using
this tune – so here goes.  Alice
If you have internet access go to
to hear the tune
Honesty’s a policy that helps you to be True,
When you always tell the truth
Your friends can count on You
If you’re always steadfast,
You can stand up for the Right
All your words will stand alone,
And in the brightest light
If you‘ve made a wrong choice,
It’s much better to be True
Quickly tell what happened
And your friends will stand with You
If you are Accountable in all you do and say
Your word will be accepted as you go along your way!
Consequence will follow – it depends upon your choice
Pinocchio had a cricket,
but you ALSO have a Voice
And if you listen closely,
Your pathway will be clear-
Just listen to your conscience
And you’ll never have to Fear!
So if you want to be a Scout
Be Trustworthy and Fair,
Remember first to have a plan,
And not just take a dare!
Your reputation’s solid if you always say what’s True,
You’ll earn a place of honor –
other scouts will follow YOU!

Be honest with yourself, others, and the Lord. When you are honest in every way, you build strength of character that will allow you to be of great service to God and others. You will be blessed with peace of mind and self-respect. When you are honest, you will be trusted by the Lord and by those around you.
Dishonesty hurts you and usually hurts others as well. When you lie, steal, shoplift, or cheat, you damage your spirit and become less able to do good things.
Don’t rationalize that wrong is right, even though many people around you may think there is no harm in being dishonest. Being honest requires courage and commitment to do what you know is right. –For the Strength of Youth.

Scripture: 1 Timothy 2:2
…that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
