    As a boss, I always favored the best and most productive workers, and also the least obnoxious.

    Does God favor certain people?

    Gen_39:21 But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

    1Sa_2:26 And the child Samuel grew on, and was in favour both with the LORD, and also with men.

    Dan_1:9 Now God had brought Daniel into favour and tender love with the prince of the eunuchs.

    Luk_1:30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.

    Luk_2:52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.

    Act_7:46 Who found favour before God, and desired to find a tabernacle for the God of Jacob.

    The way I see those verses, though, God favours certain people in order to bring about God's purposes.

    In the eschaton, when God's purposes are completely achieved, will such favour be necessary any more? Or will it rest on us all equally?

    I have shown how some are treated differently in the eternity. I was just showing that in this age as well.

    Yes, the Lord treats us all the same. We all experience the consequences of our actions.

    Then you administered justice, not favoritism.

    We are all made in the image of God, and we are all cursed by Adam's sin. We all need a savior, and we all have the free will to accept God's forgiveness.

    Yes, we are equal before God. In Christ there is no Jew nor Greek, no male nor female, no servant nor free.

    You'd probably have a hard time selling that idea to a person maimed in an accident or born with a congenital deformity.

    Or you could have been a bad boss. Hopefully not.
