Standing for Justice

According to the Readers Digest, one of the unsung heroes of the Underground Railroad movement, was Levi Coffin. Levi was a Quaker who housed as many as 17 slaves at a time.

These slaves were escaping the South and headed for Canada. At great risk to himself, Levi suffered through persecution and death threats to help solve one of the greatest injustices of his day.

Explaining his commitment to the Underground Railroad movement, Levi said “The Bible, in bidding us to feed the hungry and clothe the naked, said nothing about colour.”

In Jeremiah 22:13 God said, “Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness, his upper rooms by injustice.”

In business, there are lots of opportunities to do wrong, but it’s the courageous leader who stands for justice.
