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
