Did you ever wonder why Sir Robert Baden-Powell did not explicitly call out honesty as one of the points of the Scout Law? It is so core to the essence of Scouting. Well, he didn’t miss it. It is first and foremost. A Scout is trustworthy… can be trusted… trusted to what? Trusted to tell the truth. Trusted to do the right thing, even when it is hard. Trusted to “do your best”. In short, trusted to live up to the high standard set by the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
