2 Timothy 3:16-17 – The whole Bible was given to us by inspiration from God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives; it straightens us out and helps us do what is right. It is God’s way of making us well prepared at every point, fully equipped to do good to everyone. (TLB)
As you read earlier, in Number One Dime, I was a huge fan of DuckTales when I was a kid. I still remember when Huey, Dewey, and Louie were part of the Junior Woodchucks. It was the DuckTales version of the Boy Scouts. The triplets with Doofus Drake did the usual boy scout things of help old ladies across the street, camping, and fighting a little crime whenever possible. However no matter what trouble they could get into if they were ever in trouble the lads could always rip open the Junior Woodchucks’ Guidebook and whatever they needed to know to help them in life was in there.
I always found it amazing how a single book had the answers that any regular scout would need like, how to start a fire and how to look for water in the wilderness. Yet, it also had information about how to be a better person, mythical locations and beings. One of the skills that a Junior Woodchuck has to be able to do is draw information from the book at a moment’s notice and it struck me. We all have access to a Junior Woodchucks’ Guidebook and we all can be Junior Woodchucks, girls included.
