Royal Rangers Devotions
Give each boy a tube of toothpaste. Tell them on the count of 3; squirt all the toothpaste out on to the paper plate in front of them. See who can empty the tube first. After all of the tubes are empty, pull out your wallet and place a $20 bill on the table. Now tell the boys that whoever puts all of the toothpaste back into the tube first, will get to keep the $20. I am sure that you will have a few of them who will try, but it is nearly impossible to do that. Then go on and explain how your words and actions are. Once they are out, it is impossible to take them back, just like the toothpaste. We can say we are sorry, but once we do or say something, it is impossible to take it back. I haven't tried this yet, but plan to do so in the near future. I wonder if I should get travel size or full size tubes of toothpaste. No need for anyone to answer that.
