I will do my best --- Do all you can to live by the Scout Oath, even when you are faced with difficult challenges.

To God --- Your family and religious leaders teach you about God and the ways you can serve. You can do your duty to God by following the wisdom of those teachings and by defending the rights of others to practice their own beliefs.
