Royal Rangers is an
awesome program. There are many traits about the Royal Rangers program that are
considered to be valuable. Although I agree with all of these things, to me
there are a few of them that I would consider to be the most valuable. These
things include the Royal Ranger purpose: to reach, teach and keep boys for
Christ and the four ways a boy grows: physically, mentally, spiritually, and
socially. I believe that these things sum up the Royal Ranger program better
than anything else.
Royal Rangers is a
program designed to reach, teach and keep boys for Christ. The program does a
great job accomplishing these principles in many ways. One is to get boys
interest with things like camping, games, and extra time with friends. After
boy's attention is gained and they start having fun, they get to hear about Gods
word. This is a great way to reach out to boys and to teach them about God.
After this, they are continuously interested in the activities like pinewood
derbies, at the same time they can be around strong Christian examples like
their commanders. This helps to keep them for God throughout their lives.
One of the ways a Royal
Ranger grows is mentally. In this program they are taught abou being Alert and
Courageous. They are taught to be alert for anything such as work, play, serve,
and more. Royal Rangers has helped me to be alert by teaching me to be
physically, mentally, and spiritually alert. Royal Ranger boys are also taught
to be courageous in many ways, for example being brave in spite of danger,
criticism, or threats are ways I have learned to be courageous. Royal Rangers
keeps boys on the right track in how they learn mentally.
Another way a Royal
Ranger grows is physically. Royal Rangers are taught how to be Obedient and
Clean. Royal Rangers helps boys to become obedient to their parents, leaders,
and those in authority. Boys are kept clean in body, mind, and speech. It is
extremely vital for boys to grasp these concepts and to follow them to the best
of their abilities because these are skills that will be used all through their
lives, for example, I have already needed to use follow these things at home and
The third way boys grow
is spiritually. In Royal Rangers, there is much emphasis on a boy's spiritual
growth. Boys are taught to be Honest and Spiritual. Boys are taught to be honest
by not lying, cheating, or stealing. Royal Rangers are also taught to be
spiritual by praying reading their Bible and witnessing. These things are very
important to a boy's spiritual growth. I have experienced learning these things
personally and have seen them come into effect in other boys lives.
The Final way a Royal
Ranger boy grows is socially. Boys are taught to be Loyal and Courteous. They
are taught to be loyal by being taught to be faithful to their church family,
outpost, and friends. This means that they are taught not to make promises they
can't keep, be places they are supposed to be, and more. They are also taught to
courteous by being polite, kind, and thoughtful. These are things that all Royal
Rangers are taught to practice at all times.
Royal Rangers teaches and emphasizes these principles so that every boy involved in the program learns and is taught to practice them daily. Royal Rangers main values to me are the Royal Ranger purpose: to reach, teach and keep boys for Christ and the four ways a boy grows: physically, mentally, spiritually, and socially. These things sum up all of the values of Royal Rangers. Royal Rangers is a wonderful program.
