1 Peter 5:1-5 Reading the Passage

Clothe Yourself with Humility – 1 Peter 5:1-5

5 I exhort the elders among you—I who am a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ and also one who has a share in the glory that is going to be revealed—(2) shepherd the flock of God that is among you. Do not exercise oversight merely because you must do so, but do so willingly for God. Do not do so for material gain, but with a willingness to serve. (3) Do not lord yourselves over those who are under your care; on the contrary, be examples for the flock. (4) Then, when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never tarnish. (5) Likewise, younger men, be submissive to your elders. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another; because God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.
