Accept

Leaders should accept everyone for who they are and not show favoritism based on someone’s social or financial status. We should portray the heart of God who has accepted us (Eph 1:6).

“I solemnly command you in the presence of God and Christ Jesus and the holy angels to obey these instructions without taking sides or showing special favor to anyone.” (1 Tim 5:21; NLT)

“For God does not show favoritism” (Rom 2:11; NLT)

“How can you claim that you have faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ if you favor some people more than others? For instance, suppose someone comes into your meeting dressed in fancy clothes and expensive jewelry and another comes in who is poor and dressed in shabby clothes. If you give special attention and a good seat to the rich person, but you say to the poor one, “You can stand over there, or else sit on the floor” – well, doesn’t this discrimination show that you are guided by wrong motives?” (James 2:1-4; NLT)
