Doing Right

Choose right, oppose wrong, dignify life, and esteem everyone. (Roddie Edmonds, WWII veteran)

Edmonds was in a prisoner of war camp when he was faced with a difficult challenge from his captors. The decision to defy the commandant’s command could have cost him his life, but to obey would have caused the certain death of more than 200 of his fellow prisoners. In God’s providence he was spared, but the quote above became known as Roddie’s Code.

The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right, and his ears are open to their prayers. (1 Peter 3:12)
