Daily Living Application:
We’ve understood what favoritism is all about. However, this study was not designed to merely add to our stock of knowledge, but to bring about an attitudinal and behavioral change in us. As we address the issue of favoritism in our midst, we would not only be pleasing God but also healing the wounds and hurts in our homes, offices, churches and in the community.
“These things also belong to the wise. It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment”.
