Stars Are Good Deeds Minute
This Minute is meant for Boy Scouts.
Attributed to Lord Baden-Powell. This is a good one when sitting around a dieing campfire on a clear night.
I often think, when the sun goes down, the world is hidden by a big blanket from the light of heaven, but the stars are little holes pierced in that dark blanket by good deeds done by men in this world.
The stars are not all the same size; some are big, some are little, just as some men have done large deeds and others small deeds. But they have made their hole in the blanket by doing good before they go to heaven.
Look up there and find a spot to make your hole in the blanket by good work while you are on earth. It is something to BE good, but it is far better to DO good.
