Leaders who engage in favor-seeking behavior or practice favoritism act contrary to the biblical principles of justice and fairness. The Bible warns against showing partiality or favoritism, stating that God shows no partiality and that favoritism is a sin (Deuteronomy 10:17, James 2:1-9). The Bible also teaches us to love our neighbors as ourselves and to treat others the way we would like them to treat us (Matthew 22:39, Luke 6:31). Leaders who show favoritism not only go against these biblical principles but also create a culture of corruption and injustice that hinders the mission of the organization. God-fearing leaders follow these biblical principles and promote a culture of fairness, transparency, and meritocracy.
