Leadership and Humility

1 Therefore [I, your] fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, [and]a also a sharer of the glory that is going to be revealed, exhort the elders among you: 2 shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not by compulsion but willingly, in accordance with God, and not greedily but eagerly, 3 and not as lording it over {those under your care}b, but being examples for the flock. 4 And [when]c the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory. 5 In the same way, younger men, 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. 6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, so that he may exalt you at the [right] time, 7 casting all your cares on him, because {he cares}d for you.
