To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress.
– Proverbs 28:21
A piece of bread is a slight temptation and so speaks to the power of unchecked greed within a covetous heart. As Kidner pointed out, this sin, or temptation to sin, is not only limited to public officials, but to teachers as well (Ezekiel 13:19).
