Someone who will make us do what we can…

Emerson: Our chief want in life is someone who will make us do what we can.
Whether we find that in another person, in our friends or in our relationship with God, each of us thrives when we are placed in an environment that demands of us not just the average, but our very best.

When I was invested as a Cub Scout, I promised “On my Honour, to do my best…” – not to be better than those around me, or better than ‘average’ or even better than I did yesterday. Rather, as encunciated in the Scout Hymm, the challenge is for you to be the best, the best that you can be.
