Bible: 1 Peter 5:1-6

Leading and Living in God’s Flock

5:1 So as your fellow elder and a witness of Christ’s sufferings and as one who shares in the glory that will be revealed, I urge the elders among you: 5:2 Give a shepherd’s care to 1  God’s flock among you, exercising oversight 2  not merely as a duty 3  but willingly under God’s direction, 4  not for shameful profit but eagerly. 5:3 And do not lord it over 5  those entrusted to you, 6  but be examples to the flock. 5:4 Then 7  when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that never fades away.

5:5 In the same way, you who are younger, 8  be subject to the elders. And all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. 9  5:6 And God will exalt you in due time, 10  if you humble yourselves under his mighty hand 11
